NB: I'm not wanting to get into details of who, which, where etc. of the tread in question. So I made a comment on a thread started by someone else (who I believe has been since banned) that got quite a few of likes (more-so than usual for me). Evidently the mods here eventually took great umbrage at the OP's thread (or their account in general) and some point in the last 24 hours the thread was reaped and cast off into the dead zone (presumably moved into a forum only the mods have access to). My question is however: what about those hard earned Likes? I think the count is still the same but I can't tell. At the end of the day it's not a major thing and, like I say, I care not for any specifics of why the tread got cast off (that's a discussion for the mods and them alone). I'm just interested in knowing what the policy etc. is on any Likes received by users on a thread that subsequently vanishes. As I say, I'm not wanting a discussion of the thread in question, the OP, or if it should or shouldn't have been reaped, I'm simply asking a technical question is all.
