Hi, I'm new here. I don't want to beat a dead horse.

But I'm tempted to post my current dilemma to AskMe: I'm a new professor who gave my class of seniors a programming assignment to work on yesterday. Two of them asked for help by addressing me as "Mrs. Dashy". Here's the thing: no matter how a woman approaches the topic of sexism or implicit bias she's told "you're doing it wrong" -- so, how do you suggest I handle this? I read academic blogs, and I thought GracieABD handled her "teach naked" situation just perfectly. I was well familiar with it before it popped up here. .... or is this beating a dead, battered horse to a pulp?

Dead MeFi threads

How and under what circumstances do MeFi threads die or become deleted?

Perhaps this is an FAQ and someone can point out an existing answer, but a week or so ago, I posted a comment on a thread I found on the front page, and about an hour later found to be missing from the front page.

There is still a link to the thread in my personal comment history, but it seems otherwise publicly inaccessible.

Also, many of the comments in the thread indicated that the posters fully expected the thread to be deleted and that they were jockeying for "last post".

I've read most if not all the introductory matter here, but I don't remember seeing anything that covered this.
