yes and we have very limited super powers.
Have you mentioned this issue to your higher-ups? Scorp and BarnableB perhaps?

No, you seem to being it for us !
If I have, it hasn't done any good. All I can do is to draw attention to the issue.

If people are having thousands of posts deleted, it's only fair to let people know why.

Edited to add: @TAEZZAR , especially when one considers that Searcher was banned for deleting his own posts. Now we have some unknown reason that tens of thousands of posts are being deleted across all members accts. If "bad" posts were made that broke the rules, the right thing to do is to let them know what the offending posts were, so as to avoid the issue again later. Especially so on a user-supported site.

Down to 2,266,292
Now at 2,265,963. Another 329 gone.

You seem hellbent on blaming someone here at GIM2. Have you considered that a hacker might have gotten in & is playing with us?
Avalon & I are just low level "guardians" of the site.
Be patient, it will be resolved.

No, just wondering why there seems to be no concern about it.

Exactly the point of why I've been sounding the alarm.
Ie: so hopefully someone would check in to it to see if we've been hacked. Or worse.
.....and if the alarm appears to be being ignored, I was gonna keep ringing it until it's not being ignored.

I like this place and want it to stay around.
...but I have been observing things being deleted at a rate ten times faster than they'd been created in the first place.

How long can that go on before major damage is done?

What was I supposed to do? Just stsnd by and watch it all end up being deleted? Possibly before it was even noticed by those in charge? I was trying to do you guys a favor by pointing out a problem that seemed to be going unnoticed.

Without any feedback, how is it possible to know if anyone in charge is aware of the issue?

Even you were seemingly unaware of it until you looked to see some of your own stuff had been deleted.

Appears to be malicious malware.... Management is working on it.
I'm not a hacker or anything but it seems to me that malicious malware would just swoop in and delete them in a batch or two. The threads appear to be deleted at about the same rate as a plodding hominid would, poking the keyboard with its middle finger, one thread at a time.

Of course I could be wrong, it wouldn't be the first time.

It would be interesting to know WHAT is being dumped.

killary? hunter? kenyan? Is there an agenda they thought they could sneak in & dump older threads? Lots of great info posted here with links & articles. It can be found with a search. Could it be used against someone coming up for trial?

No, I meant something posted here against one of the elite........... there is some pretty good information here from all over the world what could be used against them if found. If the web page is gone it might not be, but if copy & pasted here could be used.......

Interesting.

I wonder if that's why the site seems to lag?

I click on a forum and it takes a few seconds for it to activate. It used to 'pop!' around here before.

Same with posting, click on 'save' and it sits there ...

Never heard of any 'malicious software' that would selectively delete posts.

Might erase the HD... but this or that post??

Wouldn't that be classified as "hearsay"?

Not when it can be proven it was published & the ds had it removed.

Face it. There is only one solution. ROPE

This place is real estate. Remodeling before putting it on the market.

:Edit: Just saw Scorpios post... I'm wrong as usual.

Just had to input a new password. I did the same thing yesterday. Did one post and had to leave the site. Went to sign in today (about 10 minutes) ago and couldn't get in. Reinstated my password again and went to looking around and couldn't see the Member forum under discussions.

Is something going on? I haven't had this much trouble for a couple of years. What's the fix?
