I see the thread from the 18 year old wanting to know about Enid Blyton s boarding schools has been deleted Anyone know why ?
I presumed it was a spoof at the start then felt a bit bad about judging now it’s gone so anyone know why?

Hmm it did seem strange, but not untoward. I made a comment to see where it might lead.
Was there an unpleasant comment?

A thread wouldn't be deleted for 'an unpleasant comment'.

It was a crock of shit and I made my feeling known - didn't report it but obviously someone did.

Missed it! Drat

Curiously, if you go on 'I'm On' it usually lists the threads you're on, including the deleted ones, with a brief explanation why it's been deleted.

But on my 'I'm On', there is no mention of Malory Towers hmm

you are able to request deletion of your own thread you know. just as you can have your own comment deleted.

I think that's what the op done!

I did post on it but it was a spoof or, as Riverwalk says a crock of shit

Lisagran Sun 24-Jan-21 16:25:34

It says it ‘broke forum guidelines’

Riverwalk Sun 24-Jan-21 16:26:11

Yes Lemsip, but usually anyone who has contributed to the thread has it on record.

I contributed to that thread, but now there is no record of it

Lisagran Sun 24-Jan-21 16:26:13

I didn’t see any unpleasant comments?

Callistemon Sun 24-Jan-21 16:27:12

And there it was - gone!

There have been some really really odd threads started lately.

BlueBelle Sun 24-Jan-21 16:54:37

It does say broke forum rules I just wonder what rules lemsip
Normally if the poster asked for it to be deleted it says ‘at posters request’
It’s still there on ‘I m on’ riverwalk well it is for me anyway
Curiouser and cruiouser
