    make deleted threads invisible

    With the uptick in spam there are a lot of deleted threads around, do they need to be visible to users with the standard permission set?
    I don't feel it serves much purpose, and it's distracting.
    I like the idea of being able to see that a post was deleted within a thread. Mostly so we may follow the thread easier if things suddenly stop making sense after a post was deleted.

    Thanks for the heads up, you should not see them, we will sort that out.

    You guys must be doing a pretty good job as I don't recall having seen any spam myself!

    That's a good tip. Thanks.

    Also, I was up doing baby duty in the early hours when the spam bot came online and I flagged 17 comments as spam. Just a note, I also had to wait the 60-second interval to flag spam (just like posting). When I did that, the spam disappeared from the 'What's New' and 'New Posts' view but not internally within the subforums. Just FYI.

    Thanks for that!

    Just as an FYI- if there are multiple posts from the same user no need to do multiple reports. We will delete all his posts at once.

    I figured that and thought it was probably overkill, but I didn't know if a mod was online.
