It was moved into Spam, and deleted.

Unfortunate. The other one remains locked, but "What do you think?" was probably one of the busiest threads I've ever seen here.

Need to make "I Was There" badges.

IMHO, there's was really nothing further to be gained from any side of the "discussion", either from the OP, serious responders, or non-serious responders. Additionally (also IMHO), it was beginning to take a turn in tone that frankly, was not the best face that the BGG community could offer.

I don't actually know what happened to it, but I'm not saddened that it's gone.

This does not alleviate my concerns about the (now commemorative) microbadge.

Something was wrong with that thread...I would not let myself chime in. It was like watching a car wreck and wondering if anyone died without checking.

It was obsoleted by the "what do you really think" thread. That thread is so much better than the "what do you think" thread, though it's really silly to compare them because they have nothing to do with each other. But, hey, there's nothing wrong with the "what do you think" thread, and people can still continue to like that thread. Those people, though, would get smoked in the "what do you really think" thread.

Genuinely and seriously, though, I am curious to see (assuming it is forthcoming - no small assumption) Bower's review.

Man, that thread had so many great moments. It shouldn't have been deleted but locked and preserved for future reference. That was a treasure.

Though I do agree that the thread took a turn near the end.

Never before has one game review held so much for so many.

Disappointing. Locking a thread is one thing. Removing it completely seems to be a bit heavy-handed and censuring.

I missed the end. Was there anything noteworthy in the last few hours?

Conjecture, or do you know that?

Could Bruce himself have deleted the thread (as his latest comments might have suggested he'd do), and would that make everybody's wonderful contributions vaporize?

No. BGG has no such feature. You can only delete your own posts. And a thread will be deleted only if there are zero posts. I.e. you can delete a thread that consists of only your own post(s) by deleting said post(s).

Just more of the same. Some irony, some useful advice, some complains, some Recon Strategy praises.

All in all it was a fine thread, with many sound counsels - from you, Curt, and several others - and funny remarks that shouldn't be deleted.

Regards,

The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. In the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater, our last best hope for victory.

It happened whilst I was reading it.

I came on to BGG, saw said thread in my subscription list, but that it was in the Spam forum, clicked on it, read a few posts, went to go to the next page, and got a 'that thread does not exist' error.

hmm, the last time I looked at the thread (admittedly a few hours ago now) Bruce was fielding tangential and tasteless questions from some guy regarding very personal things (such as his sexual orientation and mental stability). That could have had something to do with it.

Re: What happened with the what do you think thread?
But then couldn't the mods have locked the thread and deleted the objectionable posts?

The First couple of pages (I managed to get that far) were actually an interesting read, mixed in with some very funny stuff.
