Did we just lose some messages?

In two different threads, messages that I’d seen (and in one case posted) from an hour or two ago are now gone. They were just ordinary stuff, not particularly contentious, so it doesn’t seem like the sort of thing a mod would bother deleting. Anyone else seeing this?

Our practice is to delete posts by spammers without fanfare. Posts that report those are often included, and at times those that respond to them are also included.

I see that one of your posts was deleted because you quoted and responded to a spammer. When we delete spam posts, we also usually delete all responses to them as well.

The deleted post was pre-spam, which the spammer had posted before editing in the links, so it may not have been obvious.
