Ah .... it looked like being deleted by an admin, when I tried to send a reply. So, maybe the forum system message is a bit missleading in this case.
It said something like "This thread was blocked by an admin ..."

MagIO2,

When we do delete a post it is because the post was either spam, a duplicate post or it contained offending language. Those three items warrant immediate deletion. I think spam and offensive language go without saying but some people question why we delete duplicate posts. Well, if the post is a duplicate then at least one is off topic. Typically off topic posts are moved to the appropriate forum (and sometimes people think they are deleted).

If you reply to a post that is likely to get moved, deleted, etc. then you should expect your post to be affected by it. I always discourage replying to a post that is in the wrong forum, has no subject, doesn’t contain any useful information (also off topic) or is rude. Instead report these threads to a moderator and we will take appropriate action. Take care.
