(As reported by David in 'announcements').

I seem to be amongst the inadvertantly 'nuked' ones but I've re-created my account - no probs - except that all the posts I made previously seem to have disappeared.  I don't know whether they're retrievable.  Would be nice, but if they can't, it doesn't matter.

Hi Laccaria - same here!  There are now some peculiar gaps in the conversations. 

I suspect the comments are gone forever, unfortunately...

I'm really sorry about this.

I went to the forum on Monday morning and found 2,500 fake accounts setup up.  I had to go through every user in batches of 20-at-a-time trying to work out if they were real or fake - that was over 125 pages...

I don't think I can retrieve anything - I've been looking round to see what I may be able to do but I'm afraid things don't look great on that front.

Sorry!

No problems for me either Dave - thanks for all the effort you put in.
