Maybe somebody spammed it, just for a change ! Ask the mods if that was the case and if they can bring it back
#2
not everyone enjoys the taste of spam.

Yeah it was around 3 pages long, but it was spammed/expired by a sad individual, could that be the reason it was removed??

You don't know that it was spammed by 2 members(It wasn't expired).
If it was, I hope the mods/forum helpers get to the bottom of it, and quick.

It was, before it was removed a certain member posted saying 'spammed/expired, a pointless thread' or something similar, and another member also followed that member into doing the same thing. I even reported it but no MOD has bothered doing anything.

If you are talking about me saying that spam is good, then you are barking up the wrong tree. I don't spam other peoples threads, unless they post asking people to so they can get rid of it.

One person spamming it should not remove it from the boards.

If that was the case, a moderator would have spammed it in unison with the member who reported it.

Sometimes, members say they have spammed it, when they haven't. They then hope that someone else will do it, and then they themselves will not be punished for incorrectly spamming it.

Was this thread as boring as the other one I linked to, and could you not just carry that one on?

Lol no, my thread's replies were actual replies to the thread, that thread you linked to contains mostly spam, my thread had 3 pages of actual foods. I don't care that much, but it's annoying when 1 member seems to have so much leverage, and gets away with everything.

A "normal" member can't spam a thread buy themselves, it takes a minimum of two.
If a moderator spammed it, it's unlikely to return.



How to Spam and Expire properly

Start another generic thread, you will get lots of rep for it. :)
