Default Deleting threads....

I've noticed a few threads get deleted recently, nothing wrong with them, not moved, just gone, this devalues the forums when this happens, as doing that makes you have to question whether it's worth bothering to respond at all if some mod/admin is just going to delete what you took the time to write....

There was a thread about the Maverick and the F/A-18 that has since disappeared.

If a thread doesn't break any rules then why delete it?

Probably there was any mention about another sim on that thread. My post got deleted because I have mentioned another sim, I just typed the name of it and not even discussing it. Its really discoureging, I wouldnt even bother to make a thread reporting a bug, replying someone else thread (and this thread an exception thou lol) . Just let someone else posting it.

How is this a problem exactly? Just talk about the competition in general. There's no need to mention exact names, and if you don't, no rules are broken. Pretty simple, isn't it?
