Is it my computer, or is everything posted after June gone?  I can't get to the 'tour cancelled' thread or any of the other more recent topics.  Those of you who are longtime forumites, please advise:  is it my computer, or is this what you are seeing too?  Was there a crash or something?

They must have put the forum back to an earlier state after it crashed.   All the pm's in my inbox that I deleted are back, but not the most recent ones.<br><br>

They shut down the website for a day, deleted all the posts made after June 13 and thus removed any and all criticism of the Zappa plays Zappa tour (or lack thereof).

Wouldn't Frank be proud...


WTF?!!!! ??? Fucking Fascists!


Folks, it's too early for the conspiracy theories. I'd opt that a hard drive crash is the most likely assailant.

All these technical problems (I have, e.g., lost a load of messages) are probably just a way of increasing the excitement before the revelation of the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!  ;)<br><br>For newbies: the announcement supposedly explaining why the ZPZ tour was called off seven weeks ago, but is still on sale at several venues - fraud in my view, but I was told off by gz that promoters call of the shows, not ZFT. Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

You mean somebody is finally explaining something? And by the way, the promoters issue the cancellation notices, but they are NOT responsible for this tour being cancelled.  There was no tour available to them, the personnel were not confirmed, and the promoters discovered they were selling something that didn't exist.  They were Zapp'd!

Could it be they've finally got around to reading what's been written about them here and chose to just delete everything back to a happy time when there was still a tour!

Now it says TBA next to where it says ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA EUROPEAN TOUR DATES<br>quote]<br><br>Sorry, that's not new - I pointed that out a coupla weeks ago but my post has been lost.  Anyway I got an ear bashing for pointing it out - can't remember who from.  Something along the lines of "so what - does it really matter".  I think it does.  The page is a fraud - much like it appears the tour is.<br><br>Also see: http://www.zappa.com/yabb/YaBB.cgi?boar ... tart=14#14<br><br><br><br><br><br>

<br><br>-definition of the 'project/object' - that's new to that particular page, right??<br><br>
<br><br>Just checked the page again and I'm afraid the project/object definition was also there a few weeks ago - I clicked on everything way on down there at the bottom and I reported the error you get when you click for further information and asked a question and heard nothing.  I thought you meant the definition was on the page instead of just a link.  Sorry to disappoint you - nothing new there.
