    The thread and/or one or more of the users posting in it was/were probably deleted. That's what happens in those cases where you somehow manage to find a link back to a thread like that which is no longer there. How did you find a link to it, did you use a search or what?

    An old notification or a new one? I'm suspecting old. If it was a new one, it might have been generated when the thread was deleted. If that is what happened, it would be be a minor bug in the forum. If new, it also could have been generated by a change to thread before it was deleted, in which case there is nothing for it.

    I haven't checked my e-mail in a while so that's probably why

    Oh well.... Sucker probably got banned!

    It wasn't a "hacker", but a "spammer". Spam threads are always permanantly deleted without warning, with member banned.
