Hi, recently two ongoing threads were deleted from the bitcoin subsection. On thread was called "Biggest threat to bitcoin" and the second one was called "Deleted ongoing thread?" or something like that.

Can someone explain who deleted them, and what was the reason?

Thanks.

Answer: It took me 15 minutes to find out that the mod hugolp deleted an ongoing thread and merged it into another one. If he wants to merge ongoing threads at his whim, it would be polite to at least pm the participants of the thread to not leave them confused and wondering what happened to the thread.

Also I posted a second thread asking what happened, and he deleted this thread too, without notice.

Honestly, better moderation practices would be appropiate.

I though mods were supposed to be rather hands off and mainly take care of the spam. Merging threads seems pointless, since the same topics are going to come up everyday.

By merging ongoing threads into a long and not totally related thread, mods accomplish the objective of cutting off ongoing conversations, confusing posters, and diluting the ideas they dont like into incoherent eclectic neverending and unfocused threads that nobody will read.

A dishonest way to handle the situation, in my opinion.

I used to day trade Bitcoin successfully. Then I took an arrow to the knee.
