Perhaps next time a better thing to do would be to just describe what happened, then ask for advice on what to do. To be honest I don't like people going around mass-deleting posts, because then we get a bunch of dead links on our site (or if not done carefully, nonsense threads). It might be better to use the strikethrough tag [ s ] and [ /s ] (no spaces) to mark unusable content, with an edit tag saying what happened. E.g.: [s:3blnaprb]Download my tutorial[/s:3blnaprb] (edit: file went offline May 2011).
Anyways, these things happen, might be worth exercising a little bit of caution next time. Locking this thread for now.
