I couldn't find it and the links to the various, and international, news articles quoting it no longer work.

Say it ain't so, Chris.

RA,
For what its' worth your careful work on this topic made for interesting albeit disturbing reading and IMHO needs to be part of the broad historical record on Mr Ryan-it is relevant to the climbing culture and says a lot about our collective expectations of character.

Interesting that a thread cited by news sources has disappeared.

Chouinard tossed his company to the winds when it got f*#ked over by the USA.

I noticed it was gone quite some time ago. I couldn't remember who started it, but thought the he/she did it. However, all traces seem to be gone.

There are other comments about Ryan in other threads that are certainly not flattering, but they are still intact.


EDIT:

I believe it is true that when the author deletes the post the original is deleted, but the comments by others, or at least some subset of them remain. In this case everything appears to be gone.

I am guessing it was probably the thread author who did it. I forget who that was.

Wonder if Chris can put it back somehow because it was a unique climbing/political topic. The First Amendment protects the site from any possible liability arising from comments about politicians, so it wasn't that.

I have the material that formed the posts and maybe I'll repost them.

The person who started the thread can delete the first post, but the remainder of the thread is still there, just harder to find. A sort of ghost thread. Normally when that happens, one can search for key words, e.g. "Colorado fourteeners" to find the subsequent posts, and then see the thread, without header and first post. Not in this case - searching for the obvious key words doesn't reveal anything.

The other possibility is that whoever put in the first post has been not only banned, but had all his/her posts deleted - I think that may also delete any threads she/he started.

Perhaps stale non-climbing threads now get completely deleted?

What I heard was that Paul Ryan spent a week in Colorado last month and ticked all the remaining 14ers on his list. So now that he has climbed all of them, there was no longer any need to argue about the first forty.

After the election, he's going to take a week off to tick the Seven Summits before rolling up his sleeves and going back to work. At whatever job he holds after the election.

Rick,
This was nuked from above it seems because you can usually search on your own posts even if the original poster deletes the thread.

Must have been a hell of a thread to get nuked from above.

What's really weird is that not even google has any of it.

I know that things can be permanently deleted from this (or any) website, but how do you convince google that it was never there?

The ST Forum database has been hacked. Everybody should immediately stop including their social security and credit card numbers in posts, until this can be cleared up.

Interesting that The Daily Kos site which referenced the ST thread is not currently accessible.

I've deleted threads when they turned into petty pissing matches, and been bitched at for doing so.

Now, when I have an idea for a thought provoking thread I refrain because I hate having my name attached to such lowbrow shitslinging.

Who was the author of the thread? If that can be answered, then things may be solved more easily.

Archive.org hasn't crawled the site since 7/26/2011.

I'm appalled by this destruction of invaluable intellectual property!

Brandon,

This seems to be different than when the first poster deletes his post. Usually, the other posts are still accessible - not the case here.
