So every post from prior to approximately July 7, 2004, appears to have disappeared. For instance, in the Hockey forum, every thread before this one shows a "0" under replies on the forum page, and when you try to click on it you can't even see the first post. You see nothing. The same is true of Basketball and Pro Wrestling, though I haven't checked all the other forums individually.
I noticed this because I clicked on a random quote from before that cutoff date and got nothing.
Hmmm...something probably got messed up in the database. I'll figure it out. (I don't think they're GONE gone. The posts are definitely there.)
EDIT: And this should be fixed. I'm certain this was something I messed up yesterday, but I must have hit <Control>-C before it torched the whole place. I only messed up thread data through thread 21009, by the way. Thanks for catching this.
As per tradition, I see we all have Tibetan flags today. Per Wikipedia, March 28 is the date the People's Republic of China dissolved the government of Tibet (or from the PRC's perspective, "emancipated the serfs of Tibet").
