maybe I'm just overlooking it but I know I saw a thread that's no longer there. I know pbs will edit/remove the content of a post but htere were several responses in this one and I was curious to see what the discussions were but not it's gone. even typing in the OP's name it doesnt come up as ever having existed.

Okay.  I'm totally nosy. What thread?

I know they have removed whole threads - but very infrequently.

ETA - never mind.  I know which one it is.

At one time I thought they removed a thread. It was a very heated thread. It wasn't deleted, though. It was locked and moved to the end of the thread listings (it's now on page 697). I just checked there, and the same 2 locked threads are there. Don't see any new additions. I have no idea what thread is being discussed though!

The entire thread was removed by TPTB, and it's best to just leave it alone IMO.

They definitely removed at least one.  It was a while ago - it was a parenting issue where the OP (in total cluelessness) essentially admitted to committing a felony.  He asked PBS to remove it and they did.

I didn't know about the graveyard of horrible threads.  Ah, good times.

Actually, I'm really glad the PBS religious wars of Spring '09 seem to be over.

I miss all of the juicy ones.  :o/

well this one wasn't juicy last time I checked though it was a perfect setup for a fight IMO. I just didn't know TPTB would remove an entire thread..I've seen individual posts removed but the OP for this  one stilll has his/her account not suspended..seems if it's that serious to remove a thread there would be further action. hopefully it was removed way early so only a few of us saw it. but nothing juicy in the OP..just ofensive IMO.

If it's the thread I'm thinking of I don't see why their account would be suspended. I was only embarrassed for them.

well I was embarrassed for them too..don't think the OP had any idea that it could be offensive which is a bit scary...but there are lots of 'stupid' posts started here that aren't removed..just seemed if it ws serious enough for TPTB to remove the entire thread that the person did something against the rules..unless the OP requested it be removed.

but I was just curious because this isn't the first thread I've thought should have been removed yet it's the first I've seen completely disappear.

This is what I get for playing Facebook games all morning.  I missed something.  :o)

Honestly, there was really nothing there. It was just an ugly, potentially very hurtful joke. 

It wasn't like a completely entertaining flounce or something.

Ahh I think I know what it was - the ghetto resume? 

(Glad it was removed - it was offensive.)

AH ok. I would have hated to miss a good flounce.

I agree. There should be a whole flounce forum.

We can dream.

ETA - we haven't had a Grand Flounce in a really long time.  A couple of petite flounces, but nothing to write home about.

So the crazy lady from what--6 or 8 weeks ago--who called a bunch of us very derogatory names--isn't enough drama for a while?

I forgot about that! 

I remember I tuned in too late to see her name-calling post before it was removed.  I was very disappointed.
