Cleaning up and/or Restoring Removed Content - Permanently Banned Members

I was going to post this in the other thread I made about Wabbit, and it was this sort of thing that prompted the post in the first place, but that thread, predictably, has been closed already.

I completely understand the reasons for the ban may be confidential. I don't understand why it's taboo to have a discussion about the causes and effects of long-time members receiving permanent bans. I digress, as I know this is a forum for site feedback.

Nevertheless, here's what I'm talking about:



Is there a way to restore such posts? I'm needing new brakes soon and was considering this upgrade. I know there are other threads on it, but at the very least, it makes sense to remove this thread as a sticky and any others (which may mean quite a few) in which banned members have removed all the pertinent original information.

Go to Waybackmachine.com and search this forum using a date prior to 2-10-13 or whatever date he edited out his stuff. I used that site to obtain and download a FSM after they were removed. Be sure and print out the info or use screen shot software to save it.

There are other thread about the Tundra brake swap. The info is still out there.

It's too bad things had to end like they did, but life goes on. Nothing anybody can really do...

Same here. Also, as a Wabfab customer, I'd like to know what happened. Where can I find the info that I'm looking for?

Yup, didn't search hard enough. I saw OCDropzone's post in "anyone have an opinion on wabfab products". Thanks DC.

Yeah, I agree. Not cool for somebody that presumably has violated the rules and been banned to remove their contributions from the site. Especially something that's been made a sticky. I guess it happens.

But, hot damn! You mods are quick! Nice work, thanks! I guess I'm going to have to get me some new brake parts pretty soon here!

There's a couple more from Wabbit, once called First Generation FAQ that was deleted also.

I want to thank the staff for restoring the threads so quickly.

We had a moderator here many years ago that got his panties in a bunch and took down all of his tech after he left.
