saw the old messages

Medium old. Yesterday I reported to the Executive Director that messages were disappearing from the ObsComm. Only the last 10 topics or threads were showing. The ED had no idea. No one else had said anything. What would have happened if I hadn't reported it? We can't have messages suddenly disappearing. Another step backwards. Users normally expect that a forum or a listserv is gospel, that all messages are kept, so it can be treated as an archive, and used in audit trail. The key contact at the developer said, "No data loss here." Then said, it was a "paging / display issue with forums that had more than 100 threads. This is fixed now." Uh huh.
