I am well aware that I have no influence on anything that happens here but I haven't ever seen a thread removed just because everyone was bored with it. I would still like to know from someone at Gramophone why this has happened.
Haha, could be the work of Luca Thread Police, a secretive organisation that never explains it's actions. Wander off topic and you become one of the disappeared.

I think it was the right moment to finish a heated debate that had become too personal and it could only hurt the forum and, eventually, even the magazine.
