In 2001 someone started a thread called Godzilla He Tastes Really Neat (Is He Made of Turtle Meat?)
, about canned meat marketed as 'Godzilla meat'. Someone found the thread and asked for help buying a Godzilla toy sold by the same company. Since the original thread was from 2001, and the company that made the toy merged with another company in 2006, I told the new poster that he might have trouble finding the toy.
When I looked later, I saw that there was a new thread in GQ (Looking for Godzilla Toy
) consisting of the new poster's question and my reply -- and the original thread had been disappeared.
Why was the original Godzilla meat thread sent to the cornfield? Sure, it was a zombie; but shouldn't it have just been locked?
