      any other consequences we should know about?
      all user info given to nambla?

      and thanks for telling us what happened.
      There definitely is a backup, but using it reverts back to the time of delete (losing recent posts in favor of old ones) and taking the forums offline for a few hours. Wasn't worth it.

      He's been a poster for years with an interesting history of cars.

      So who are you, a newbie who just happens to know about an old thread and talking about things you don't know about or a banned user making a snarky re-introduction?

      I've been reading this forum for couple of years, but decided register last summer. I think I asked a fair question about missing thread and this jackass (200HP4dr) decided to answer to my question with personal attack... So I think my reply was justified. You guys always welcome new members to this forum like this?

      I thank all of you who gave fair answers to my original question.

      The history of The Car Lounge is replete with folks who have been filled with nothing but vitriol for those who either dislike what they like or fans of their cars' "enemies". With a whopping post count in the single digits, it's not a big stretch to assume that someone who asked about a long running thread is an old user who got banned for behavior such as that and simply created a new account. His post may have been over-the-top, but it escalated quickly. At this point it's not too late to kiss and make up, though.

      The fist few days on TCL can be pretty rough on newbies. Don't take it personally.

      Chris is a good guy, just grumpy today. Happens to all of us.

      That and I've had more cars with power adders and suspensions mods than you've got IQ points chief, so you've got no ground to stand on there.

      Is that so? Because he always talks like someone sh*t in his cornflakes.

      In lieu of the original thread, this deserves to go here instead

      I wanted to ask the same.

      I was only on page 275 or so. Bummed that it disappeared but, it's nice to have an answer as to why.

      i remember being PARTLY responsible for getting the DIW thread before the most recent one thrown into the black hole a while back.

      i posted a random pic i found in the MKIV forums of a jetta with neon-colored wheels. turns out the girl who's car it was came into the thread and started bitching about me posting it.

      then that girl got in a fight with some dude she knew from somewhere else, and the bickering between the both of them got worse and worse for two pages until the mods turned on the black hole and sucked it away.

      i felt bad, but the car with the neon wheels sucked.

      good times!
