I posted a thread titled 'Iraq War costing U.S. taxpayers $5,000 per second' and it somehow magically disappeared into the abyss; poof, down the rabbit hole. I went to great pains to point out that I wanted to discuss the economic impact of the war's costs, and asked people to not politicize the thread. Be that as it may, the thread disappeared w/out a trace, and w/out a clue or explanation. If whomever is going to delete my non-offensive and factual thread, at least do me the courtesy of telling me why it was deleted. I've seen the most offensive and most useless threads in the universe linger on here forever, but apparently my thread crossed the line. WTF.
