Skip to comments.What happens to deleted threads and why are they deleted? At the discretion of whom?

So I had commented on an article where the nyt I think, was picking apart trumps debt and insinuating that his acceptance of loans from box/GS was somehow a horrible thing for a presidential nominee to do.
I surfed for a bit and wanted to read what others had written. The topic is completely gone, my comment isn't listed in pings.(my comment was 'and if it was Hillary they'd say the 950 million annual debt from boc/GS was covered plus xx% by annual leases' and then 'remember when Hillary stole priceless antiques from the wh so she could eat like common folk' or something along those lines.)
So where did the topic go? Is this site becoming like GLP and censoring topics? There were 8 other comments on that topic I believe.
Not good if active topics are being trashed if someone doesn't like what's said.

Discretion of the all powerful mods. Maybe yours was a duplicate?
“What happens to deleted threads”
They are deleted.
“and why are they deleted?”
It could be for any number of reasons.
“At the discretion of whom?”
The site owner and site staff.
In this complicated world, easy questions are refreshing.
bit bucket. Bits are recycleable. Save D erf!
No the entire thread was removed. I didn’t start it.
Deleted threads are recycled and the bits are sent to less fortunate conservative sites or kept in reserve for busy Trump threads where extra server power is needed.
If they don't like what you have to say, or don't like the topic, they zap it.
Most often on a superficial impression.
It's probably unavoidable as Jim can't monitor 7x24x365 and he has to trust some other to keep an eye on things. But some of who he trusts are idiots.
Censorship is your answer then lol
Send Jim $50 for the Freepathon and he’ll send you the decoder ring.
My guess was it was a duplicate. NYT gets posted pretty frequently. Use search to see it it had been posted using a word from the article title under “title” in the search box.
"....ut oh, now ya did it"
Thanks Mariner. So this site is exactly like GLP.
Adios all. Enjoy the censorship.
The site owner and his staff have the descretion to delete posts they deem problematic.
Post with no link to source
Problematic topics that are off the wall
Posts promoting ideologies this forum doesn’t support or want to be seen associated with
There are probably some reasons I left out, but they all follow these lines of logic.
If something was deleted you like, perhaps you can find more on it by doing a web search, following links to where you find what you want, and read more.

A random thread in good health is chosen and is used to pay the price.
That is how FreeRepublic remains advertising free.
What the heck is GLP? and please try a better opus if that is what it was.
Jeez, you didn't even make it a year.
