    In cleaning up some spam posts the other day I inadvertently deleted two (or three) entire threads. These are irrevoverable.

    My sincere apologies to any and all posters this may have effected. On the plus side you are all free to throw this up in my face at any time for the next six months.

    What's the point of re-starting it if it's already been answered and talked about?

    Regretably I don't know. The spammer had opened a thread with a spamming post. No one had replied to it. I deleted the thread.
    I noticed he had a total of five posts, so I opened up the "Show All Posts by xxxx" page. It was evident that he had posted the same thing in each case. This is when I deleted the threads before spotting that some were more than one post long. I did this to at least one, probably two and possibly three, but not four. I did not notice what the topics of the deleted threads were because at the time of deletion I thought they were single posts from the spammer.
    We learn from our mistakes. This is why I know so much.

    Dont think its a problem, if the people who wrote the thread read this they'd realise and re-post or whatever

    Since nobody has chirped up and complained how can we be sure you are not just lonely and want to start a thread about yourself? :wink:
