When we delete posts/threads they are "soft-deleted" so that only moderators/admins can see them. We do this in case we make a mistake (it happens!) so we can reinstate them. But I don't see a trolling motor thread started by you.
Also, if members have a question about a thread or need us to check something please use the Support ticket system so we don't clutter up forums with housekeeping stuff. I'll leave this thread for a bit so you can see the response but then I'll delete it. Thanks.
