When Threads Are HIDDEN -Please read
Addressing the Site Discussion community specifically
The question is constantly asked (and constantly answered), why was this or that thread REMOVED/DELETED; and people usually go into a questioning Mod/Org intentions or judging moderators/moderation. We hide threads when we receive a request of moderation by people taking part in the discussion(or sometimes people just watching the discussion)
We hide it so we get a chance to look into the issues, if it is not something that is really obvious and can be handled in 1 snip. Sometimes we need to/ask another mod to look at the issue for a 2nd opinion. We hide threads to stop people from possible or continually commenting on the post in question. Which of course, if we have to Snip things, that means we have to make notes, as well as locate and snip all post that replied to the offending post.
So I hope this solves the mystery of 'why was this or that thread removed'
This applies everywhere on the Org

Just the FAQS... and Some Extra Helpful Info!
We’ve had several threads at the top of this discussion forum for quite awhile. Some were created to add to more clarity to a rule already in place and some to explain why we do what we do when we do what we do. Make sense?
Still, it’s a little crowded in the Site Discussion forum, so I’m creating this thread to consolidate all the threads into a “one-stop” info/faq type thread.
Below are the links to the original threads… and thanks for hangin’ around.
