Is this a joke or what?

Buko's thread,

Report Spam or inappropriate content here again.

Disappears... then reappears!

The thread:

"Forum Comments forum is the new Lounge thread" has vanished....

Who is this moderator who's playing havoc?

Posts have been deleted with no explanation... what is going on?

It would be a lot better if the Mystery Moderator added an explanatory note, as was the custom with the good moderators in the past.

I'm starting to get paranoid.  Yesterday I replied to a post and today the entire thread is gone.  Threads disappear.  No spam, no profanity, no reason.  And WHY do the entire threads go instead of just the offensive post/reply?  That makes no sense.

It just keeps getting worse instead of improving.

You've obviously got the posting touch of death!

(But seriously, what you're talking about seems pretty dreadful.)

This morning while attempting to go to the forums a window came up warning me that adobe wanted to download a 365 byte file on my computer. I of course selected no suspecting the forum link was hijacked and was attempting to download a virus. This happened about 5 or 6 times so I gave up. I came back to click on forums and the offer to download the file did not show up.

I have never seen this before. The file said it came from adobe but there was no history on it and it said "Unknown File". Weird

Did anybody else see this attempt to download a file when they went to click on the forum link?

Um! the word again is a key word. That means I started a new thread. Notice it just has a few posts.

But I must agree this forum has turned into a joke. the whole design community is certainly have a good laugh.
