What happened to the thread about not returning to Phuket?

There was a thread someone posted about deciding they were not going to return to Phuket. I replied to it yesterday but now the entire thread has disappeared. There was nothing abusive from any of the posters and it was mainly a discussion about high prices and people discussing alternative locations to visit. I've seen a lot of topics closed by TA over the years but deleting the entire thread as if the conversation never happened seems a little Orwellian.

Threads and comments disappear very quickly around here. You might find this post gone too.

All you need to do is hurt someone's feelings, and boom. Gone.

If the OP deletes their original post, does the thread not disappear ?

Just guessing

There was certainly nothing wrong with the thread to cause TA to remove it

Weird, oh well, not going to lose any sleep over it or anything just curious.

Most likely the OP removed the original post himself which closes it immediately and the rest of the thread follows soon after. If the OP was reported as inappropriate by other members it would be closed but would remain with the original text replaced by a standard TA explanation that it had been closed "by the Community" but the replies would remain for a while as it wnt down the list but closed to further replies. It was interesting while it lasted.
