I don't come by here very much anymore (due to time constraints unfortunately) but do threads ever get deleted in the politics section? I posted there yesterday and came back today to respond- the thread loaded (maybe from my cache?) but upon submitting my reply, I was redirected to another thread.
It was a thread about the tea parties and Bush.
Some threads and replies were lost in the recent server problems, I think.
Since each one is assigned a number to keep track of it, a new thread might have been assigned that number since then, which may have been why you were redirected to that one.
This is due to switching to the new server at the moment you posted to that topic.
I'll be trying to find a way to recover some posts and topics that were lost this way, but unfortunately this isn't the easiest thing to do.
No worries, I was just wondering what happened.
