I think my first
thread topic might have disappeared. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. It was titled “Introducing Max” and was last seen in MPSIMS. The date I submitted the original post was March 22, 2019 and the old URL was https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=872856
I quoted part of my OP here.
I was going to link to it on my profile where you can set a “featured topic”, which isn’t remotely important, but I’m genuinely curious as to what happened.
