I *think* it might be a server error at Get Satisfaction.  I have a few other links to it, all read somewhat differently, some are mid-page and they all fail.  The message "Can't find that page" acts very unusual too, it pops in and out with different size fonts and displays, really fast, like even the 404 error message is messed up.

I wondered if someone took it down because the content was getting a little heated!

I don't think so. It had a long way to go and the first appearance of the lawyer is the one that went over the top and it's still here.  She embarrassed herself and she knew it.  We were right and she was wrong but wasn't going to hear any part of it.  In the mod's message about the Corporate Offices being closed is classic material.  There is an after-hours mini-mod here.  I say "mini" because I am not certain of that person's abilities at the controls of this forum.  I know they can take down post, edit, but beyond that I have seen nothing more.  I have not seen the after hours mod here tonite so it's anyone's guess why that thread vanished.

Hopefully more content gets taken down when the admins return from vacation.  I don't want there to be any evidence out there that I'm reasonably educated.

You did a lousy job of it too.  I think a person has to be born with some sort of 'trait' to be a lawyer, otherwise we're all naturally nice  to other people.  Hey, but you tried, a zebra can't change it's stripes, you're just not lawyer material.

Nah. I stay at Hampton Inns. I don't also post rants on Christmas Eve going on about some product I am upset about.

Probably just too much spiked eggnog!

I solved it.   The post was renamed, it isn't really gone. (Now who would do such a thing?)  My first reply in the thread was the key.  I started off addressing the title of the thread with:
Naw, not bull at all.  
and now I came across this unassuming thread HERE.

Someone cleaned it up to take the idiot tone out of it.

The new mystery is this:  Is there more than one 'regular' here that has mod level access?  Most of us know who the one is, but who is the other one? because the first one hasn't been around (so we think anyway).
 
Hmmm....  yup, we have an invisible mod here.  They are locking threads from yesterday (which might be a good thing, the lawyer has been silenced in her demented thread).

If you say so.....but it doesn't seem to have quite the same flavor as the original! Although, it did seem to have some of the same ingredients!

Some of the ad hominem was censored as I recall from observing the original spit  fights spanning multiple threads  - just as the title was changed ;)

The invisible mod is not so invisible - pay attention ;)

That, after I said to leave your computer at work ! 
I suspected you but just wasn't sure.  The title "clean-up job" was just so 'Viasat' sounding, a big rant in the title changed to "Billing Dispute" was obvious but the after-hours mod is really good at that lingo you guys use so I couldn't be sure.
