Oddity


Recommended Posts

This morning I opened a new posting which seemed

interesting, but just as I got started reading it, it vanished.

That had never happened before.

The first few paragraphs started out about the person's

father being a dentist in Grapevine Texas. That was as

far as I got when the message suddenly disapppeared.

I searched for about five minutes trying to find it and

could not. I even used the search function, entering the

word DENTIST with no results.

Anybody know what's going on here, and what the posting

was?

Not a clue.

A quick check of the board logs reveals that no posts have been deleted by any of the administrators today. I therefore have to anticipate 'user error' as the most likely explanation

Couldn't have been a user error. I was just sitting here reading the

screen when it suddenly switched to another message in another

thread. I didn't touch anything. That is why I called it an oddity.

post-1084-1149605189_thumb.gif I am guessing that possibly the message was supposed to self-destruct after you had read it, but the timer was set incorrectly. If it wasn't that, then the only other thing you might do is check your forum tools option and see if you have somehow accidently put a check in the box next to the "disappearing ink" option.

I'm more inclined to think that a naked "spook" was tapping into Jacks internet connection. He is the most dangerous photo expert in America don't you know. I'm sure the secret agents are all lined up ready to get a crack at him.

Most amusing.

Jack, you are referring to the top post on the second page of the General Walker

'a pauper?' topic.

I had to replace my mouse recently as one button started to intermittently misfire, opening and closing things at random. Perhaps something like this happened.
