My post at the bottom of page 2 there, it's... nothing. However I did post a sentence, now it's gone.

There's no edit notice, no reason for it to have been removed, and when I try to use the quick edit it just doesn't even load, and when I go to quote it nothing shows up in the post box, not even quote tags surrounding nothing.

I've seen this happen to another post or two in other threads, but I thought it was people just continuing a "post nothing to confuse people" trend from the EoF.

I've never seen this happen.

Perhaps it's a moderator who had a little too much to drink this Thanksgiving?
Perhaps it's a bug in the site's coding?

Quite a mystery.

I don't know what you wrote, but your post is empty in the database.
the site displays whatever is in the database, that is .. nothing.

of course you can't make an empty post so there is something wrong, but what causes it?
it seems difficult to explain...

What I wrote was a "Whoops, I forgot about that" response to the post directly above it (no quote included), I didn't check after posting it to see if it showed up or not.

The fact that there's not even any quotes when trying to quote it (and that I can't quick edit) is what hinted me that maybe it's something up with the site.

I've seen it happen before a few times. (example)
The strangest thing is that when you quote the "post", it won't even show the [quote] tag at all (what you get is completely empty).
It also seems to skip to the next post if you link to it like I did above.

I think I might have noticed this the other day, but I'm not sure whether I actually got around to pressing the quote button or not.

I was using multiquote and therefore didn't press it immediately before replying, which is why I don't know. I don't think that post was blank though.

Same here. Actually, it seems something's up with the site, as Costy said. Hmm.
