The front page shows "nnascati" as the one who started this thread, but the thread itself doesn't have his opening post:

It doesn't look like a transporter merge malfunction in this case, which would involve the blending of two or more topics..

No. The original post simply is not there.

Is this a new version of "the bug"?

It probably means he deleted his post. grin

But it doesn't show a "Delete".

And it doesn't seem to be a Crossposting error, because there is no Crossposting on this one.

When a post is deleted, it is not fully deleted right away. There is about an hour when the poster can change his mind and undelete his post. During this period, the post is shown as a "deleted" post.

After the hour period, the post is permanently deleted.

Well, I can't say I'm thrilled to hear that. Not at all.

At least with the "Delete" label you knew the reason why there might be a continuity issue in the thread.

So why bother replying to someone on a thread, if it's going to make you look like you're talking to yourself and not as if there was ever a post there? Or will leave you wondering if you're seeing things?

Not exactly a good move when there are people who already have trust issues.

It's aliens … or Rooskies or NoKos, etc., …

LOL. There are other "historical records" (threads) that are apparently being re-written before our very eyes. :)
