This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm guessing because it was neither meaningless nor drivel. While I feel for you having your thread deleted, we are having to deal with 'what the forum has become' rather than 'what some of us would like it to be'.
Topics with meaning are likely to get removed. If not sooner then later.
