    Disappearing Threads

    Disappearing Threads

    Is it me, and my inability to use the search function correctly, or are there threads that disappear from this forum?

    The reason I ask is a thread I started some six months ago - before the Mosque shootings - most definitely seems to have disappeared. I only know this as I went to reference something from it some weeks back. I couldn’t find hide nor hair of it anywhere. There were some, perhaps, controversial posts in it; perhaps to be considered more so after the shooting. This I just accepted as the moderators cleaning up/sanitising the forum in the expectation that there would be some official attention cast upon the forum.

    No problem as I keep a copy of all that I post, generally, and even some of the more salient replies. I still had the information that I was looking for.

    Now, just in the last week or so there has been a thread entitled something like, “How is this still legal?” Or some such similar title. The thread pertained to the sale of .22 caliber rifles that looked very similar to the ones in Center fire caliber that are now prohibited. I thought the discussion in that thread was rather tame, nothing really noteworthy or controversial. But now this thread seems to have disappeared.

    Can someone tell me or confirm, is it just me being inept in my ability to search for or find past threads or has the thread been removed.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Threads/topics in the 'Firearms Law Changes' section won't show in searches.
    The thread you mention is in there.

    Thanks for that @ROKTOY, that is reassuring.

    Not wanting to be a pain, but is there any reason why ‘Firearm Law Changes’ posts don’t show up in searches?

    Cheers

    @Goosebayhunter, whilst I would like to believe that is the case I am sure that if and when they want to troll through this forum they will have the covert communications branch of the government write a small program that will go through the whole site retrieving and indexing all of the information to their required needs. Further more, depending where the forum stores its data, even the deleted material that you and I can’t see, may more than likely be retrieved and indexed as well, that is of course if it hasn’t already been collected.

    Scary thoughts to dwell on eh!

    Cheers

    Can anyone help explain where the thread 'I cant kill anymore' started by @zarathustra has gone ??
    It was a thread about compassion, emotion and our place on earth.
    Last week Max Headroom ended his membership of the forum over frustration with a very similar situation

    I'm pretty sure that it's been deleted cause someone felt the need to name a certain person who has caused us all as NZ FAL a great deal of hardship in his comparison for some reason or another.
    I wondered how long before the thread got deleted after that....seems it has come to pass.

    Thank's for posting that opinion Danny. If that is actually the case it is unacceptable to me that an entire thread is deleted because of a single post from a single member.
    Why is not just the single offending post deleted ?
    Is only a single 'moderator' responsible for deleting the thread or is there a robust system for checking these actions ?

    Dunno, but it has been made abundantly clear before that there will be zero tolerance and that the offending thread will be removed rather than fosicing through deleting individual posts. I agree it can be frustrating especially when you don't know why but that is the stance the mods have taken.
    The mods are all volunteers and I don't pretend to know how much time they put in to this place but I'm grateful for it.

    Granted I am guessing but pretty sure that'll be why it was deleted.
    Like it or not that is what has been decided on it may seem a bit harsh or unacceptable but to be fair I don't know how much time and effort is involved in deleting posts or the frustration of having threads with posts clearly missing with holes all through them.
    The world unfortunately has changed and I guess the way forward is that we either accept it and follow what little guidelines this place has....ie: no politics, religion or mention of the one we don't speak of....or move on.
    I am happy to stay and I'm not having a dig at anyone, quite frankly I get bombarded with all the unmetionable shite enough most days I come on here to share my passion of "hunting and shooting" I rarely contribute or even respond to the other stuff as it almost always ends in a shit fight.

    Mods feel free to delete my post if I'm wrong or have stepped out of line.

    I can see the point. Who's got time to waste trying to see where the threads gone off on a tangent. Mods aren't exactly getting paid for it so......

    So the Mods punish the masses for the actions of one ? Isn't that just exactly the same thing as what the Govt did to us post March 15 ??
    We have not had a response from any Mod's to confirm that they deleted the thread, if true it does not align with my values
