Yesterday, there was a thread from a new member who claimed to have a "Master's Degree" in pharmacy and wanted to start a lab to study new HIV therapies. I replied along with a few others. That thread seems to have been wiped.

I have no disagreement with that action. I almost reported the thread myself, but the language syntax was not our old friend from India.

May I ask that when such an action is taken, a notice to those who responded be sent to the effect, "The thread to which you responded has been deleted. Reason: 'spam' (or whatever)."

hi John,
Within the post text there was a link to a supplier of medical equipment, it was an attempt to promote the supplier of the equipment, ie: site promotion.
Initially, the promo link was deleted from the post, after discussion it was decided that the Thread should be deleted.

Thank you for your comments.

Thanks for the reply. I don't recall seeing the link when I responded, and I agree the likelihood of success was close to zero. In fact, it was a pretty strange post.
