Disappearance of Individual Posts
« on: July 10, 2015, 06:19:28 PM »
Yes, I do sometimes read threads more than once.  :P

But sometimes I come back to a thread I've previously read and am SURE I remember a post/reply that now isn't there. There's not even a blank space where the post used to be, to clearly indicate it was removed.

Yes, if someone decides to delete their post for whatever reason, it looks like it was never there unless another poster quoted it before it got deleted. Deleting is frowned upon if it can cause confusion, but it's OK if you do it once in a while and it doesn't affect the rest of the discussion.

I've also seen times where Mods have deleted posts, though they usually say something about it in the thread.

Not always.  I've had posts deleted without comment.
