    It is being worked on. This is where we'd put a technical difficulties screen.

    The front page at the moment links to thread no. 700339 which the vBulletins forums system says has "No Thread specified".

    Whoopsie.

    I'd just read the first page of comments, and clicked on the second page, and BAM, tis gone.

    Gone, gone, forevermore gone.

    All these comments about Safari being teh snappier have blown away into the yawning gap of Ginanngu, swirling dustily with the Powerbook G5 announcements.

    We are the poorer for it.

    (sheds silent tear for 124 murdered comments.)

    Along with all the comments on "the update is XXX MB on my system," "what's the difference between the combo update and the regular update," and "I got an error downloading the update; what do I do?"

    Well over 300!

    Too many fanboys claimed Safari is snappier and the thread died of torture.

    The previous thread appears not to be recoverable, after an unlikely combination of events, mixed with human error, as we managed the thread in realtime. Our apologizes.

    If you made comments in the lost portion of the thread about the Mac OS X 10.5.7 release, and you consider them important for other users to read (let's exclude comments on filesizes or the progress of your installation), you are welcome to repeat your comments in the replacement thread.

    Oh dear... though I'm by no means a vBulletin expert or even a forum administration expert, I've heard about these kinds of things happening. Hey, at least the problem's resolved in a way that's acceptable, right? :D

    A little excessive zeal in moderation, eh? Happens to the best of us.

    Have the people responsible for sacking the people responsible for overzealously deleting comments been sacked?

    Our combination staff meeting and potato sack race isn't scheduled until the weekend.

    But we will try to avoid this problem in the future.

    I posted a rather witty comment in response to someone... gone. :(

    This makes me upset

    Personally I blame the error on a botched 10.5.7 install. :D
