    I've sort of been following the "Excuses to pull a sickie" through the day.

    I just logged on to bring it back on topic from a discussion about contractors and to agree that it had got a bit a heavy, but with a reason why that might be.

    I see it's gone.

    Fair enough, but given that other threads get deleted or moved, I wondered if it might be an idea to at least have a small explanation its place.

    What think you?

    I assume the new user 'newbottom'? got obliterated as a post-count-hungry spammer, and the thread went down with it as they started it - rather than that thread being deleted for its particular content.

    Yeah, that's probably right.

    It's just if there was a little note to that effect in its place it would save me 2 minutes of thinking I'm going mad. :confused:

    You're not mad, :thumbsup: When someone is deleted as a spammer all their posts threads dissappear automatically so it's not necessarily possible to find them all and let you good folks know...
