I was reading through this ancient thread, and kept getting a sense of having just jumped several exchanges in a conversation without going through the intervening parts. Close analysis of the post numbers proves me to be right; certain 'in reply to' links point to URL fragments which are not, in fact, defined.

The missing posts' authors and dates still appear in the threaded list, but these links are now also invalid. It can't be a case of user banning/rage-quitting, because at least one user ("davidb") has only had about half of his posts deleted, with the other half remaining intact. Some of the content is preserved only as quotes in surviving posts.

I wouldn't normally mind so much, except that one or two of the deleted posts were the single most significant things ever posted on this forum!
