    No sign of them anywhere Have they been culled or is TES under fire from H&M privacy intrusion notices?

    The one I started got locked.

    No idea why...

    Things got a bit heated last night, and one poster was told to "wind your neck in". I couldn't see it lasting too long, after that.

    Nothing to do with the PH scale, although some of the comments were pretty acidic!

    I thought critical rather than acidic (on lanokias thread anyway) Far worse has been posted about members of this forum (and I doubt H&M read TES. ) And even if there is something that breaks T&Cs I thought the procedure was to delete the post - not delete/lock the whole thread.

    Probably just fallen further down the pages as threads do when new ones appear.

    No, they've gone, I didn't know that happened. I know the first one was locked and the second one had drifted into untold monotony and obsession.

    That's the crux of the issue. The poster with the "obsession" was being trolled by others. One person's obsession is another person's topical interest. The poster in question argued - factually correctly - that they had posted nothing worse than certain other posters, but that they were being singled out for abuse, some of it artfully disguised as a concern for their welfare. It was not pleasant reading and I am not surprised the thread was pulled.

    I had hoped that with Rosaline's departure, the moderation of this forum might have been improved with a lighter touch.
    Fat chance.

    Ordinarily I would agree with you, but in this case I think it was the correct decision.

    Apologies, I did actually get grade A in Chemistry O Level, but sadly it was back in 1975...
