Thread Deletion Issue

Last night, I found a spam post that was added onto the end of a good thread (about depleted uranium) in Radiochemistry. It was one of your typical nonsensical spam posts advertising shoes.
So, I reported that post. I woke up this morning and found that the whole thread is gone!
I know most spam comes in new threads, but if this happens when reporting a spam post in an existing thread, there could be issues.

Interesting. I've reported a post on the end of a thread before and the thread was retained, so this sounds like a mistake.

Lets launch a boycott of Nike and let them know...and let them know why!

Or just go for BLOODY REVENGE!!!

Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Anatol Rapoport was a Russian-born American mathematical psychologist (1911-2007).

Bert, that's really funny. We should all do it :)
How, erm, legal is that, though?
But the SpamDuh extension looks exceptionally funny :) It allows you to create webpages full of fake emails for spammers to attempt to spam.
