It's a private forum where deleted threads are sometimes kept. Only JavaRanch staff have access.

...then why even you show us such forums?

Thanks.

Because that's how the JavaRanch software (UBB) works: private forums aren't invisible to people who don't have access.

Besides, who wants to go digging through a Trash can? Other than political aids that is.

We keep the Trash Can out for better ventilation too. Also it makes it easier to throw posts to it from a forum that's a long ways away. Problem is, if you miss then it sometimes falls in MO.

You little people still can't see it but moderators crumple 'em up and start doing like a floor hockey thing with it.
