It's rare we outright lose a thread or don't have a backup when one is lost, but that's what happened tonight.
I went to update the thread a part of it is moving it in and out of the forum. I stuttered while clicking and didn't select a destination forum. There is a bug with that routine that sends the post off to space when no destination forum is specified.
The newest backup I had was from tuesday night (because of the host maintenance last night) before that thread titled "Finding Good Affiliates" took off.
Sorry about that. I think that maybe the first completely lost thread that was our fault in 3 years.
