Be careful what you all wish for.

These modern day politards ruining for high offices these days are heavy hitters.

Ya just might get a knock on the door and become a drooling lobotomized zombie hours later ......

Maybe someone should ask why the reconstructed thread which contains a significant share of the original has not been deleted.

On another topic MittRomney, no exercise slouch himself, was in Del Mar today watching movies and eating pizza. Nobody seemed to care whether he and Ann ran up from La Jolla or arrived on horseback.

Another angle on this. The original threads gained some attention on your national stage. That in turn might have attracted all sorts of political trolls to SuperTopo. Not just amateurs, like most of us, but the professionals. Not only further diluting what the forum is about, but creating a management problem. Perhaps Chris simply didn't want to have to deal with that, and took pre-emptive action.

A story like the disappearance of this thread might seem petty and unworthy of much concern to many, but if his claims of mountain mastery were proven to be imaginary, I believe it could ruin his career, or certainly his chances for the presidency. It would be a story he could never live down.

The kind of corruption, lust for power and money that is at play here might make the disappearance of such a credible discussion as the one on ST a high priority.

Chris' silence on the matter does raise suspicions about his involvement in, or at least knowledge of what happened. Seems he could offer some kind of explanation.

Rick was really onto something, I think. It would seem somebody would have the skills to trace what happened, and who made it happen. The answers to those questions might be far more intriguing than the original thread was.

Not the way I see it. Ryan's lying about his marathon time was unconverted--and it was still a small story that quickly blew over. Ryan's 14er hiking can never really be proved or disproved, and his handlers came up with explanations of Ryan's statements that were probably BS at some level, but were plausible enough to ensure this obscure topic stayed obscure. I have hiked all Colo. 14ers (except Culebra) and ran (jogged) a sub-4 hour marathon, and not even I really care that much about Ryan's d-baggery. It's a real stretch to think that average Joe is going to care about this, especially in 4 years.

Anyone who thinks that getting caught being a BS-artist and teller of whoppers is fatal to a political career should spend a few minutes googling the career of our illustrious current VP.

I took Wernerís advice and called Chris. We didnít speak directly, but exchanged voice mails. He said he did not know why the thread was deleted. Apparently he wasnít even aware of the issue!

So, apologies to Chris for saying that his silence indicated arrogance on his part. Apparently, he has better things to do (climbing?) than follow the discussions on his forum.

Still, there remains the mystery of who deleted the thread and why. I hope Chris can clarify how it came about.

Have you ever noticed that people, especially those with with power and influence, sometimes withhold information or even lie to protect their agenda, best interests, and/or bottom line?

If by "sometimes" you actually mean "most of the time", then yes, I have noticed that.

For sure the undead & dead can and do get together. Just last night in New York City
A that all American venue the felt fore arm of the Madison square garden where they grow carrots and coffee beans just the beans, the dead played a concert with some crypt keeper , not Paul Ryan, - John Mayer . So some 70 years olds, thr Dead and the very much alive Mayor of NYC ? Got together.
Now to add to this a member of my family was an eye witness. Not the 25 year old how's birth day I memorialize here and in the proper thread, happy birthday! "
They are all gym climbers now Jake"
It was the 84.5 year old bad Mudder! She took the train ride into the shjty and was shocked to find she had to share her train car and in fact her bench seat with a hoard of 30 year old Jerry's kids some who had paid $800.00 for a ticket
and the guy across from her who she said said he had 100 tickets for sale!?.
Now moms as not dressed as the dead heads were for Halloween - but she is a frightening sight and I matinee worse if you are tripping, She stands 4 foot Seven, has twin scares one fresh , running from just under each eye to below her lower lip!
She was bored and miffed at being crowded , then was scared as to what was going on beyond the marathon, Halloween & the World Series . So she pipes up, and asks what is going on? She is met by your friendly oppertunisticly Bob dead head who has all the extra tics, who says " I bet you don't know how the Grateful Dead are"
I'm not sure why she did not get hers self and the birthday boy grandson tickets after all,
she won the bet,
"THEY ARE ALL GYM CLIMBERS NOW, JAKE" ! HEY? SPEAKER RYAN .  HOW MANY ...
"THEY ARE ALL GYM CLIMBERS NOW, JAKE" ! HEY? SPEAKER RYAN . HOW MANY COLORADO 14'ers?
WHAT WAS THE TIME FRAME?
Credit: Gnome Ofthe Diabase
but instead had to be reassured that when at 11 pm on the return trip home she would be alright, or should stay at rad hipsters pad in Brooklyn over night?
The moms story is priceless and shadows my dead fathers flight sitting with that jerball on a shuttle flight, so knowing who Jerry was he spent the flight talking Wagner and the opening of the Seven rings in Vienna that Phill and Jerry had attended but were cruxed - more by the bad German, ( it was hi German / Austrian) than the poor quality of the fancy production that my (heather headed deadhead) father felt was beyond the pale. . .
