    GMInsideNews Data Incontinence

    I thought at first, it's Alzheimers. It's gotta be.
    Then I looked around and did some more searches.
    And I find that my posts were "selectively" deleted.

    Come on guys, gals and <Moderator Name Redacted>. This is 2014.
    You're acting like some fresh out of college marketing major who can hardly tie his or her shoelaces.

    Toyota already sells the Tundra. That's as much half-assed as this nation can bear.
    If you're going to censor, take all the posts.
    Just freaking go all the way.

    It is entirely possible someone will respond to this thread,
    perhaps carrying a burdensome weight of heavy-handed censorship and totalitarianism.
    Lash out all you want, loudly proclaim your innocence and roundly deny your heavy burden of guilt.
    It's July 4th, and this great nation was founded on freedom not censorship.

    So yeah, I did notice, it's not right, and you need to finish the job.

    Other than that, best wishes to every GMIer for a fantastic July 4th Independence Day!

    Then we must of really liked plane to delete every post of his from 2012-2014......

    Seriously, we have no clue what happened to those posts. No moderator would take the time to wipe out 2 years worth of posts. Probably some kind of server error.

    Puff of smoke from the grassy knoll.
    Building 7 collapses hours later.
    Chester Nimitz knew about the Japanese and carriers sent to sea.

    Now plane's posts disappear.

    They're all connected. The TRUTH is out there!!!

    In my professional opinion, we need look no further than the IRS for the real story here. Stuff can just disappear, server, backups, PC, paper copies. It's amazing.

    If that doesn't answer the question, listen to Coast to Coast AM. All will be revealed.

    Meanwhile I will check back for my own post #5,280. I always thought something funny was going on at mile marker #1.

    Looking at your post history is totally hosed.

    I see a handful of recent posts, and then only stuff from 2012 going backwards. Apparently 2013 fell into the etherbits.

    So not just plane comPlaning, the forum software has some issues.

    It's not a theory! The time for discussion is over! We must act now!

    Oops sorry. My Global Warming Autocorrect accidentally kicked in.

    However... Out of plane's last 10 posts, 4 were the warmest on record.

    There's no conspiracy.
    I'm not pointing fingers at you or anyone in particular including <teenager name redacted>.

    We all know how easy it is to run vbulletin delete scripts.
    Even a comatose zombie staff person can wipe 2 years worth of posts in 30 seconds.
    You might even be able to do it with a little coaching.

    This isn't something that requires IBM consultants.
    If <you know who> wants to censor posts, more power to them.
    Just finish the job.

    I like the insinuation that I'm stupid. Just because I haven't been shown how to do something, it doesn't mean that I am stupid. Anybody that knowingly was editing posts would have removed the irrelevant parts while leaving the stuff regarding the topic in place. As for the entire year's worth of missing posts, it has to be some kind of software glitch. Did someone at AutoGuide update the computers to Windows 8? A new Windows OS always messes something up.

    No one insinuated that you are stupid.
    Did I use "Bless your heart" even once? No.

    This is not a software glitch.
    It's disappointing.

    Laugh my ass off funny would have been deleting every post...except the first one,
    and resetting my post count to newbie status.
    That would have been funny as hell.

    But 2 years of posts gone? Where's the humor? Where's the mirth?

    The NSA rang -they have borrowed your posts and won't return them until a generous donation towards their Christmas party if forthcoming. I would also set something aside GCHQ as well just in case!

    I honestly can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not plane, but we really didn't have anything to do with this. The mods can't pick a timeframe of posts to delete unless we go through and delete them one by one.
