Could have been spam that TA staff deleted before you got to read it.

>>Could have been reported by other members.<<<

But how would they know whose mailbox to go to and delete messages??

Sorry but with thousands, possibly millions of members it just seems too far fetched to be possible.

They can

The message would have to originate from a PM account so all they need to do it track that person's out box and cancel all the PM's

Easy!!!
