Truncated posts

Recently some of our thread data was corrupted, and I am in the midst of fixing the problem. If you spot a thread where it looks like the last post was truncated, or maybe there are no posts at all, or you get a "thread data corrupt" message or something similar, please (a) post the URL here, and (b) do not respond to that thread. Moderators, please close such truncated threads if/when you discover them.

I can fix these by bringing in a backup from Sunday night (when the damage occurred) but then we'll lose newer posts. I may also be able to splice the data together, but that's more work; I would prefer that we simply close the old threads until they're fixed. So please just post the URL here to let me know.

If you see any other posts about this problem, please direct them to this thread. Thanks.
