Why was this thread deleted?

Postby Kookaburra » Tue 15 Feb 2011 15:36

I was looking for an old topic that I created but I was shocked to find that the thread was deleted. I googled it and manage to retrieve a cache.

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/s ... gle.com.au

Who deleted it? There were no personal attacks and I thought there were some good info in it. It's really bizarre. I remember another thread about fructose:glucose ratio that were deleted too. My thread on tomato being an evil fruit was also deleted from the Others Opinion section. Can the mods please explain?

I think RRM moved it to here: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=2290&p=25460

Don't fall for the lies,
It was spider aliens they are known to eat web pages
(They call themselves bots because they're robotic spiders which crawl the internet)
The worst one is Google bot

Where is the lengthy thread on fructose:glucose ratio discussed by djkvan and RRM. In it, djkvan talked about how dried fruits are not natural, its fructose contents, etc.

If it is not there anymore, i must have deleted it.
I have deleted lots of threads (or single posts) that didnt contain any valuable information in my opinion.
The initial purpose of this board was to create a Q and A database, from which new users could distract information.
My role is to get this forum in such a shape that its easy get the info that you need.
There are still a LOT of threads that i need to reconsider / edit.

That thread had a lot of good info and it's gone just like that. The way threads are deleted and edited, you might as well set up a personal webpage entitled 'RRM's mailbag' and visitors can send any questions they have to your private email and you can choose which ones to publish.

Yes, of course we could share a mailbox and publish the Q and A later,
but this way it is easier for us, as the publishing is automated,
and we only have to delete stuff.
