Searching the forum+ old threads not being shown

OK I have been searching through the forum but whenever I click on a thread that is past a couple of years old the thread does not display. All I get is a page listing the various forum areas come up.

So my question is this have these threads been deleted from the database? Which seems quite likely to me and if so why do they still show up on a search of the forums if you can no longer acesss that information.

I appricate that keeping this forum running in tip top condition must take time, effort and dedication and I find it a wonderful resource.

This is more of an observation really than a moan, just if something has been deleted from the database then why still have it show up on a search?

but we have certainly restricted the age of the 'My postings' lists, and we've limited the retrievable threads to those younger than two years.

This has been done to help the site run faster.
