I think this may be an explanation, because where this was most problematic is in the Windows Activation thread in the News Forum. It appears that some posts are being deleted by the mods, and this is creating havoc with the thread. Perhaps the intent of the mod is good, but in effect the net result is very negative. It is creating such a disruption of discussion, that I'm beginning to feel that participating in such a thread is of no value. If this combination of moderation and combining of posts continues, I shall probably discontinue active participation in the forum altogether. I imagine that the admins see it differently, but the free discussion of a topic (within normal forum ettiquette) and coherence of posts is of more importance than some kind of savings of thread length or format created by the mod.
