    I will continue to add new chapters to this thread, as my memory of years past recollects other such oddities and strange occurences that have unfolded within our MC webs.

    No, you're right, there's nothing mysterious about that. But the reason why the particular examples of which I've written about are mysterious, are because of their unusual and strange circumstances.

    Chapter 4: The Disappearing MCer

    Over the years, MC has accumulated a vast collection of threads that have gone on for countless pages - despite the turn over in community, and members coming and going - these threads offered something for everybody, at any given time, hence their longevity. More often than not, because of the general, off-topic nature of these threads, they would often be derailed into a series of muffining, penguin tossing, and impromtu fanfics and RPs.

    In recent years, however, these massive threads have, one by one, been disappearing, without a trace. Some of the casualties of these deletions have included, but are not limited to: "Boy, is This Forum Dead Today, or What?", "The What Made You Smile Today Thread", "The What Made You Frown Today Thread", "The Am I The Only One? Thread", and "The Quote Thread", among others. But, these threads were popular and active, and have been for years . . . so, why delete them? Was it a bandwidth issue? Were the threads taking up too much server space? Were they just so massive that they needed to be pruned to help conserve space and bandwidth on the forum? Surprisingly, no. None of the above. Those seem like logical, and even understandable reasons for these huge threads to be deleted from MC . . . so, what's the actual explanation for these threads being deleted? According to MC moderator, Ed - who also goes by the aliases, The Count, and Jim Thundercloud - these threads were deleted because of an anonymous member requesting that his or her posts in these threads be deleted; Count Jim Edcloud has reasoned that it would simply be easier, and less time-consuming, to just delete the entire threads altogether, rather than go through these massive threads - page, by hundreds of pages - to delete this one member's individual posts within.

    Due to confidentiality, Thunder Jim has never revealed the identity of the anonymous member who has made multiple requests to have his or her posts removed from these threads, which has resulted in the deletion of these threads altogether - much to the frustrations and annoyance of other MCers, who were extremely unhappy about seeing such large threads that they've dedicated years to disappear (not to mention more than a few members being angered at their post counts suddenly dropping, drastically). In a sense, you can't really fault The Cloud Count for wanting to go the route that would require less work and effort . . . but, to sum up this brief chapter eloquently, and succinctly: who the frog is this mysterious anonymous member who keeps inconveniencing the rest of us, and why is he or she so ashamed of even being here?! If this member doesn't want to be here anymore, or have their posts seen by everyone else, couldn't they just request their account be deleted, and wouldn't they remove their content as a result?!

    I would bet money on it being multiple people.

    Every time I hear about that it peeves me... time to go to the pet peeves thread, until it gets removed.
