    The thread where racroesus was talking about man bags and tackle seems to have disappeared.

    Two of my likes went with it!

    Shouldn't you be able to keep your likes even if a thread disappears?

    I once lost 35 likes... a big thread was deleted... I was distraught... wife spent the rest of the day talking me off the garden shed!

    I was only permitted plastic cutlery the rest of the day.

    How much did you spend on therapy?

    Pah!

    Where's my history of 10,000 plus posts which disappeared when TES restructured?

    Why did a thread on man bags disappear? Weird. Surely it was innocuous.

    Innocuous is not a TES poster or mod, btw!

    Just as a guess - maybe it was deleted when they were busy deleting all the spamming threads this morning. Probably very easily done

    In the (almost) words of Crocodile Dundee,

    "That's not a man bag. THIS is a man bag!"

    We unfortunately lost some other threads too, but had nothing been done, the chances are we'd have been starting from scratch, since at the time I looked in, there were at least 30 pages of spam.

    I think the reason we lost those threads is because they were being replied to during the spamming, making them difficult to pick out during the deletion process.

    In case anyone's interested in the scale of the problem, I went through the process of ignoring the spammers until I got fed up with it, which was around five minutes after I started. This is my ignore list. It's interesting to note how many trophy points some of the usernames had clocked up.

    I wonder how long it would take to sort through all those pockets and pouches in a panic of thinking you'd lost your passport.

    Rucksacks are rather precious on urban wifi warriors.

    Isn't 'man bag' a euphemism for the scrotum?

    Well post #15 puts this in a new light!

    After the posts about man bags there was innuendo about where racroesus kept his tackle.

    It was fishing tackle and very innocent but some dirty minded person may have complained.

    Innuendo?
    I didn't see that.

    Maybe I'm confusing it with the thread about scorpions in Uranus.

    I definitely didn't see that!
    :eek:
