Hermagoras has done valuable fieldwork, and made an astounding discovery:

Yo yo yo peeps! Nixplanatory filter in da House!

Remember that horrid little thread by Galapagos Finch? The one with the cheese grater toilet paper? The one where getawitness continued his crusade to get an explanation on the EV paper? And maybe was getting somewhere?

The whole thread is gone: 404 For Yourself

There can be only one explanation. The Nixplanatory Filter has mutated and evolved. We've witnessed the emergence of a new function for the Nixplanatory filter. Exapted from its previous function - blanking inconveniently truthful commenters - it has acquired a new function: obliviating entire threads. This may only occur when those threads explicitly embarrass the lead smathematiciannakeoilsalesman - but that remains to be seen.

This is a rare and exciting moment in Rescienceligion. Hats off to Hermagoras.
