Yes, I remember that thread fondly and wistfully, too. I could detect no rule violation or untoward discussion, so it might not have been a mod at all but - the thread starter? After all, the first post (and only the first post) did already ignore the board's anti-spam rules (hiding probably usurped "linktopic" content behind linkbucks).
I don't think "Mr linktopic" or a mod objected, but perhaps the thread starter did not like "his" thread being taken over by constructive sharers.
So - care to list more specifically what you missed? Earlier Lolly is covered in typical comprehensive linktopic manner right in this thread, and others may help out with the two-hundreds...
