I see three points of confusion. First, I read the latest post to that thread yesterday evening and, at that time, there were only 13 posts in the thread. Therefore, unless at least fifty replies were posted in the course of less than 24 hours that tally is false. Second, you are a new member and this post, in fact, was your first on Cnet. Bob has not been a participant in that thread and you have had no previous interaction with him as far as I can tell, so I see absolutely no reason why you have chosen to single him out as the purported perpetrator. And third, The thread was started by ByronGman, not climberpete1, so I do not see how it is 'your thread.' Feel free to post the links to the reportedly deleted posts, bt at this time I see absolutely no evidence of any wrongdoing.
I have recently been monitoring a thread and as of late last night it dropped from 60+ posts to 13. I believe these posts were removed by moderator Robert Proffitt because he couldn't admit that he was wrong. Any unbiased reader following the thread would agree that he could be wrong. But instead of accepting that truth he went in last night and removed all references to his folly.
The forum in question is:

Since I tracked the thread I have a dozen emails that now point to nothing. And I still haven't solved my issue. I just want my thread back so we can fix our problem.
