Missing topic

In the wee hours of this morning I received an email notification that another poster had replied to me. Several hours later when I clicked on the “Go to discussion” link I arrived at a notice saying the discussion didn’t exist. I looked for the discussion in the usual places and couldn’t find it. Did the mods delete the discussion? Does this happen often?

I really don’t understand why anyone would want an email notification . If the post is gone it was deleted by the poster or it was Spam or not even important to start with.

Threads getting locked is common, I see the author has withdrawn the post and it will be deleted within 24 hours, maybe that is what happened.

The thread was in “Ask someone who owns one” and there were maybe three replies last time I checked, including one by me, hence the notification. Even if the OP had deleted his post wouldn’t the others still be there? And I can still see locked threads. This one is just gone. The OP got his answer so it doesn’t matter to me but it’s a bit of a mystery.

Hi. That’s weird. I don’t know if John had deleted it, but it wasn’t me. We review them at different times of the day, and I delete the ones that really make no sense. but if there’s a response I’ll keep them because the poster might come back. I should add that I went through our mod activity logs and don’t see any deleted between last night and this morning.

Twilight Zone.

Just because every day is Friday, a little music to hijack the thread.

Golden Earring was one of my favorite 70s groups.

I vividly remember ‘Twilight Zone’ and ‘Radar Love’. I know they had other decent songs which are lost in my fading memories. Today I was trying to remember a song I liked but could not recall the title or any lyrics. It was not Golden Earring…

Thanks. I enjoyed that. I was thinking in terms of Manhattan Transfer though:
