Sensored (Deleted) thread?

Hey y'all. So, I typed-up a rather lengthy reply to a thread a few moments ago. It actually sat idle on my desktop while I went to lunch. I finished when I came back, and hit "send", only for the screen to tell me the topic is now closed. And now the thread seems to be gone entirely.

When I last read the thread, it seemed relatively civil, and reasonable. So I'm curious what sort of things must occur for a thread to be deleted like that?

There was a general sense of derision toward a specific shop from some posters. I wonder if that was related to the thread disappearing? This is why I ask. Not to start it back up, but to be sure I understand where the wind is blowing from.

I don't think I've ever seen that happen, aside from spam threads (which they seriously slack on). I thought the conversation was fairly civil, though I hadn't checked it for a few hours. I guess Pelican is going all "1984" on us.

I'm not impressed...

What thread was it
That latest and greatest IMS one?
If so, that couldn't hold a candle to some of the old ones like the cat thread, Mr. JonathanLanda,....
No reason at all to kill it

The thread where the rotor lip could cut the brake sensor wire was epic, maybe in 3rd place behind the cats and the Jonathan threads.

Indeed a definite classic

What was the rotor lip thread? I really can't remember that one

And I for one don't miss Jonathan at all, although it did make for some good humor and now I have a desire for some cheesecake.

It's kind of interesting, every now and then some newbe jumps in, makes a complete ass of themselves, collectively the forum spanks them and then we never hear from them again.

I guess we kind of self moderate

In a nutshell... the lip, once pronounced on a worn rotor, is sharp enough and cuts thru the sensor. Thus it completes the ground of circuit thru the rotor which illuminates brake wear indicator light on your dash. Somewhat akin to a vintage bicycle headlight w/ generator for those of us w/ enough chronological experience - LOL
