Two threads were merged.

After that, one user commented something, then later deleted their comments, but in the meanwhile, a few people had responded. I believe that another moderated deleted the posts that were a response to the user-deleted comment.

It would have been kinder to edit out the replying part, not silently bin people's work.

http://forum.cyclingnews.com/viewtopic.php?t=31423 for a summary of the doping allegations, about halfway down the page, after the stuff referring to deleted tweets. Still RIP Paul because of all the people he introduced and inspired, but I fear he's not going to be the last rider from the testosterone-doping era that dies young.
