Because it was deleted. Probably because someone rightfully complained that it was harassing or defamatory to a private individual. The law makes clear distinctions that the internet is a public place, like a sidewalk or public park. You have the right to speak freely there. But once you go into the realm of libeling or violating someone's privacy, then you are breaking the law. Since this is a matter of civil and not criminal law, Topix deletes the thread in order to not be liable or a party to defamation or privacy violations.

The only one I've seen on here that was recently deleted was one where they were attacking a woman because she was Asian and some awful things happened to her family. That sounds bad enough to get deleted.

I don't have a problem with them deleting threads with private citizens, but it is frustrating to see public figures and political activists using the report function to silence dissent and opinions they do not agree with.
