Several users have been banned recently because of their frankly disgusting sectarian views, and I've deleted all of their posts because I don't feel it necessary to provide a platform for scumbags and loonies*. Thread counts often look a bit wonky because of this. It'll sort itself out the next time I recalculate the counters.
* The loony being Davros/gonzo/RDBloomfield/littlebrownman/etc. Rang me at 3am recently talking about right of reply. That would be a right of reply for being banned for spouting sectarian bile. But more importantly, how nutty do you have to be for a forum to be that important to you? I reckon the man uses his own ass for a hat. Seriously.
