Missing Topic?

I was going to read the rest of the recent Is First Strike paintball? thread... But it is no longer available. Could somebody that knows please explain why it has disappeared? Was it just erased for being a rehash that was stirring up a heated topic with no real answer?

I am not trying to jump start a **** storm. I honestly want to know what happened with no explanation.

I was actually reading all sides of the debate. I only finished page 9.

Thanks,
Un2XS

I think the second post in that thread, the one with MJ eating popcorn and smiling, summed up the entirety of what was about to unfold. I'm glad it got nipped before it got out of hand.

Kudos to the mods.

I had one deleted that was titled "The most pathetic people in paintball" In it I mentioned the type of people who electro-blast newbies/renters into oblivion. The discussion that came from the rant was uniformly bent toward the view that "these people" are the doom of paintball, and we should rise above that.

I guess the mods felt differently, because 3+ pages into the discussion...gone.

:/ This one will be gone soon. Too edgy. Lol...sorta.

I'm not saying I called it, but I did get the popcorn gif on post #2... that, uh... may have been a slightly self-fulfilling prophecy

My bad.

OK but seriously- discussions about what is wrong with paintball tend to go this way. Eventually someone identifies with the "type" of player getting blamed, and then justified or not, takes it personally, reacts, etc etc you know the rest

Please note: I am not trying to restart the topic.I am just trying to understand moderation guidelines.

Ok.... No moderator has come out and said it, but I'll take from the response to my query that the thread was deleted.

What do moderators use as a basis for deleting vs thread locking? When does the discourse cross the line from discussion, to thread lock, or to deletion?
