Help, I'm Seeing, I Mean Not Seeing, Disappearing Threads?

Do entire threads just disappear without any explanation? I had just replied to a thread entitled "Right Wing Ideology In A Nutshell" and a few minutes later, it just disappeared. When I attempt to access it through myATS, I get a 404 error code.

Can anyone explain what just happened?

If your on to a good conspiracy TPTB will quickly take it down immediately.

We have evidence of this provided by our great leader Mel Gibson (All hail!).

Nope, usually just broke T and C, and got it deleted. Hope that clears it up for ya!

There was still a link for it? Huh, probably in RATS, pay 5,000 ats points and you'll be able to see it again.

Shame, I really enjoyed the thread. Whether I agree with the terms used or not, it was a really good read that pointed out many of our problems.

Of course it had to be deleted.

I can see where this is going already...

The thread was removed because it violated our Terms and Conditions.

Any time you paste content onto our site you are shown the following message:

'NOTICE: If the text you are pasting is from an external source, ensure you only use a small snippet and you MUST include a link to the source article. DO NOT copy-and-paste entire sections of content from other web sites onto ATS. Posts containing large amounts of text copied from other web sites may be removed without warning, and repeat offenses will result in an account termination.'

The thread in question opened with two full posts that were directly copied and pasted from another source. The person who authored the thread has been contacted by our staff and is welcome to open the conversation again in a proper manner.

There's nothing else to it.

Thank you for clarifying what happened, there.

I didn't even notice, but you're right.

It's only 500 now for the first month and 250 per month afterwards.

Just an observation ........

Were it ATS' policy to create a page explaining the details why something is deleted instead of just going to a 404, then this fellow (and others like him every week) wouldn't have had to create this thread, and you wouldn't have had to take the time to explain it here.

.... seems so obvious to me.
