A thread in which posters explored the National Security Agency, Edward Snowden and similar subjects just up and disappeared without any explanation last Saturday at UFO Casebook, an online discussion forum, the Orlando Paranormal Examiner reports. The thread, containing more than 500 entries and an estimated 3,700 page views, was restored later, on Sunday afternoon, but website moderators and administrators could not explain why the discussion thread of highly sensitive issues was temporarily deleted.
“No one associated with the forum removed the thread,” UFO Casebook administrator B.J. Booth informed the OP Examiner on Sunday, adding: “We are trying to find out what happened.”
Booth tends to blame the strange disappearance on a server glitch, a common malfunction on Internet message boards and publishing sites, but considering the context of the removed discussion, and the fact that some forum members had become seriously invested in the thread, there is increased suspicion in the ranks regarding an intervention from big brother, the American intelligence community.
“This thread was not deleted by anyone,” an administrator from Conforums insisted, “but for some reason, and I can’t fathom how it happened, it ‘dropped’ out.”
