arent u supposed to pm a mod if u have a problem? i didnt think they read every thread

Actually, I PMed Ticia several weeks ago when I first realized something was amiss. She PMed me back but it looks like something happened again. So I followed up on it a little while ago. The above was just an added way in case a mod saw it before she got online.

I have gone through all the proper channels here. Thanks!

ohhh good idea! i wasnt trying to sound rude but i thought thats what the rules said. i reported ur post so someone will defintely see it!   

eta - i reported that u were looking for info not that i thought u were rude or anything i realized that could have sounded bad!

No. You were right! There is a correct way of doing things here. I should have mentioned that I'd done the PMs before.

Thanks for reporting the thread. We're going to track that thing down somehow! :D

Maybe I'm not getting this - but what's so important about how to eat a piece of corn?

It doesn't make any sense to me, but then again, maybe you had to be there.

It's not that it's that important. It's that the thread was there, it disappeared, it reappeared in another folder (but without the "moved to" notification that usually happens when a thread is moved - and none of the mods moved it), it disappeared again, reappeared, disappeared, Ticia found it and said it was in the Coffee Break folder, and now it's gone again.

There's something wrong with the software, it sounds like. None of the mods or Admin have been able to figure out what's happened. If it happened to this thread, it could be happening to others. It could explain some of the other threads and posts that people are noticing going into a black hole somewhere. There have been other posts that just disappear (and weren't removed by mods, so it wasn't like a forum rule type issue). So it might need to be looked into.

Dotty, the mod log says your post was deleted, why the mod did it I don't know. You don't have to worry about threads being eaten alive.

You're talking about, like, someone sliced up a corn cob and tossed the chunks in soup? I am DYING to know the answer to that. I've run into that a few times lately and have no idea. (FWIW, I sort of nibbled some of the kernels off the cob while the whole thing was in my spoon, but that can't be correct.)

I ordered the Tortilla Soup at Chuy's the other day - and there it was, a big ol' piece of corn on the cob right in the soup!

I took it out of the bowl and put it on a side plate.  Then, I put my fork in one side and used my knife to cut the kernels off.  The cob was pretty soft, so it worked well.
