I think THIS thread should be archived. Who's with me?

Stuff that somebody wants to keep around for some reason. If it doesn't end up in the Archive, chances are it will eventually be the victim of a purge.

I think these Sports Forum threads are archive-worthy. Sometimes its fun to go back and relive championship moments.

I think his question though was not what caused a thread to be archived, but what caused one to be removed (see references to banned content).

If specifically you are asking about a particular thread in Other that was discussing automotive fuel, the thread starter deleted his own thread. If you delete the first post in a thread, the entire thread is deleted.

Speaking of Archived threads, I just went back and read the one of the morning of 9-11. Amazing stuff.

Just feeling a bit masochistic, I guess.

Just went back and read it myself since you mentioned it. That was surreal.

There is a new member who sounds suspiciously like him in the Covers area.
