Why are threads and posts being deleted?

  • Blizzard.. why are you deleting posts? as a consumer i would like an answer.

    i was about to post on another thread and received "This topic has reached its post limit. You may no longer post or reply to posts for this topic."

    why are topics being blocked from discussion??? like this discussion: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5633977775#new-post

    only interested in the positive? i hope i dont get "banned" for posting, i should start documenting my posts and recording my attempts to have an open discussion.

    By default, all threads have a post limit. Unless a thread is manually extended by a Blizzard employee, it will cap out after 500 posts.
