As I've pointed out before, if everyone would just accept 'Tee is right' as gospel, we'd all save time. thlgrin

If there isn't a lapse to let people read the message then invariably some I e starts a thread asking where the thread has gone.

I think it's to give people a chance to read HQ's message.

It's a carefully laid trap for trolls. They sneak back in to take a look, walk through a trip wire over a net that hoiks them up high in the air and they're left there swinging, till all their hairy toes fall off.

I've always wondered this too.

I like the lapse in time, it gives me time to catch up before it goes poof!

I've also always wondered this. I like to think it's to give us time to mark our place before the deletion message grin
