Got this email answer for a thread:
MacInWin has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Newbie needs help finding folder - in the Switcher Hangout forum of Mac Forums.
This thread is located at:
Here is the message that has just been posted:
Hey, Craig, it's post/answer all in one, very efficient. You just need to move into the 21st century!
There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.
All the best,
Part of the thread had disappeared. Clicked the link, now the whole thread has vanished. It's not in my 'View your posts' list. Got the 'invalid link, Contact an Administrator' page. Strange.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

Hi Craig - well, I can vouch for that event - I left at least one post in that same thread (maybe two?) - it's no longer in 'My Posts' list - can an OP delete their own thread? Dave

No, they cant. Has to be an Admin. Either the board is borked or someone had a reason.Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done and why. Then do it!

Unfortunately, it appears as though that particular thread was hard deleted. We don't ordinarily hard delete a thread/post unless it was generated by a spammer. That said, I have seen times where a moderator can inadvertently hard delete a thread by using the 'delete as spam' option the wrong way. I suspect that may have been what happened here.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

The thread was not hard deleted, it was moved to the deleted threads forum. The reason the thread was moved is that the thread starter was banned for having multiple accounts. The thread is located here.
Sorry about any confusion it may have caused. I thought both members who responded would notice the ban under the member's name when they replied. Apparently they missed it.
