I was looking at a thread in Great Debates. It is titled, “So, do Satanic cults exist?”. In the words of the moderator who closed that thread, “it was closed because it was a zombie thread and began attracting several nonsense posts”.
On my PC, the thread occupies 5 pages and on the last page, there is a post by FriarTed that quotes the now-banned poster “lastoftheindependents”.
My problem with this is I could not find the post being quoted anywhere in that thread. I looked at the first four pages and I hope I am not mistaken but I couldn’t find it anywhere.
I’d like to ask how is this possible? How can one poster quote another poster in a thread and then the post by that first poster (who is now banned) doesn’t seem to appear anywhere in the thread?
Am I mistaken about something here? Or is it possible that some mod deleted that post? The curious thing is that if the post was deleted and the poster banned, how is it possible that they made several more posts in this thread.
The post and the thread are not of any importance to me. I’m just trying to understand the way this board works. Here is a link to that thread.
