Some time ago I posted a question on the Septuagint version of the book of Jonah. On the 16 August 2005 I received a notification that somebody had posted a reply, but I can't find the reply anywhere. I tried clicking on the link in the notification but it leads to a message saying that the post does not exist.

Could it have been our spamming online pharmacy friend, and the message got deleted by a moderator before you ever saw it? I've seen several old threads re-appear this way. (Usually it's some automated program posting links to help a site do better in Google).

Anything is possible I suppose. But I wonder why they would have chosen that particular thread? If I remember rightly it dates back to Lent last year.

"They" did not only choose that thread. A few other were the beneficiaries of adds for cheap viagra etc as well.

FWIW, I did not whack it. IF you would like to repost the question, we can have another go at it, hopefully without the spammers getting to it!

Oh, the question was perfectly adequately answered last time. I was just curious to see what had been added.

"That's a story that always baffles science, 'cause science says
that the whale's swallow isn't big enough to take a man in.
But if you notice the Bible said that God prepared this one.
This was a special kind of a--a fish. God... He's Jehovah-jireh;
He can provide anything He wants to do, because He's God.
Abraham called him Jehovah-jireh, 'cause He spoke that sacrifice
into existence. He's still Jehovah-jireh; He can provide what He wishes.
And He prepared this fish." William M. Branham
