The site ran out of disk space. I have freed up enough disk space so that discussion can resume, but threads have been damaged. Damaged threads can likely not be recovered.
We have far more disk space than we need and should never have run out. I am investigating now.
Edited by Admin, : Change title.

Disk Space Problem Fixed
We again have gigabytes and gigabytes of disk space. The problem was caused by gargantuan maillog files which have been deleted.

Restarting Lost Threads
First let me apologize for the threads that were lost when the site ran out of disk space. We haven't lost any threads in a very long time, and I'm taking mesaures to insure that this doesn't happen again.
Unfortunately the lost data cannot be restored. I make periodic backups of the entire site, but the last one was a couple weeks ago.
If anyone would like to resume the discussion of a lost thread, please submit a thread proposal and I will promote it as quickly as possible. Give it a title as best as you remember, note that it is for a lost thread, then briefly summarize the discussion.
