Old threads in Archive - how to access?

Searching the archive in this forum sometimes throws up a really old thread and when I click on it it's no longer available - or is it? if so, how? If it isn't available what's the point of showing that thread?

Very good question as I have often wondered how to access threads that were posted before I joined the PCA Forum!
I wonder whether they are deleted after (say) a year as the number of threads posted on a daily basis must be astronomical.

exactly - I can understand that they are deleted after a certain time, but why then allow them to show up in an archive search?

Again another good question. Perhaps only the Forum Editor knows the answer to our queries!

thanks crx1600, some handy links in your link - but it still doesn't explain CurlyWhirly's point and mine - that these threads are still allowed to show up in a search but then we can't access them.

OK folks, I'll tick resolved 'cos we can't solve it; but it's still very irritating.
