If this isn't considered a bug, it should be. I almost went and reposted in a thread because I thought a post a made before was eaten. Luckily I realized someone probably got butthurt and started something that resulted in everything getting nuked. Don't see why my post had get nuked as well, but oh well.
When there's no notification that a post was nuked, and no evidence that the post exists even through something only the poster can view, chances are you're going to think the forum screwed up and remake the post.
