So I have reported a thread, I actually posted on the thread initially and thought the thread was genuine. A few concerns were raised so reported the thread, got an email back from MNHQ saying they had looked behind the scenes and banned the poster but the thread is still live?? How??

HQ don't automatically delete threads just because they've banned the OP.

The thread has to be offensive or causing them to delete tons of posts.

But if the story was bullshit then surely it makes sense to zap the thread?

which thread

Sometimes if the information in the thread is useful HQ will let it stand.

Ah right, ok - it just confused me why they sent a message saying the poster was banned and then the thread was still there - I thought I was missing something. The thread wasn't offensive just bullshit based on what the poster had posted on other threads and a little goady (based on that seemed like a troll) but nothing that could offend anyone.
