Vanishing topics?

i recall a few days ago there was a discussion titled Relaxing type requirements for array indices
, which has seemingly vanished (google cache). i’ve been running into a related issue, so i was going to post in the topic, but it is no longer there.

what happened to that thread?


Similar issues occurred when deleting my user account whose email was not being forwarded. In creating a new user with the same name I hoped the previous posts would be reconnected. They weren't and the related posts were gone.

This may explain why some users have multiple number suffix accounts. They must have had a similar mail not being forwarded issue but were wiser and added a number to a new user of the same name.
