My topic disappeared - why?
« on: July 01, 2022, 08:41:13 PM »
Yesterday I posted a new topic here, and today it's gone. Why? Who removed it?

Here's the former topic link:
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=320157.0

It concerned a website which Avast couldn't open.
Here's the error message I got today:
“An Error Has Occurred!
The topic or board you are looking for appears to be either missing or off limits to you.”

I can't be certain - but that may well have been me, if so please accept my apologies.

I was dealing with a lot of forum spammers yesterday posting unrelated active links in their first post in the forums.

If you can remember the site avast couldn't open and why, please post it again.

When posting a url don't enter the https, www. etc. only the domain name, etc. so it isn't active - forum.avast.com for example.

Just a forum comment/description/humour, based on the number of posts that have been made.

Those with a high number of posts in the forums, Possibly Bot and Certainly Bot, e.g. to have made this volume of posts it might be a Bot.  But for me it has only taken 18 years of being on the forums to become Certainly Bot.
