xkcd "what if" deleted?

I don't know if anyone here follows the xkcd site - in particular the "what if" section but something strange seems to have happened recently. In the past the "what if" section updated once a week and then it began to slow down to longer gaps. Recently the "Flood Death Valley" topic has stayed on for quite some time but a few days ago (maybe sometime last week(?) there was a new post. Unfortunately I can't remember the topic even though I read it, but it only stayed up for a a short time and then it disappeared, going back to the "Flood Death Valley" again. Did anyone here notice that, has anyone heard an explanation, and what was the topic that disappeared? I would probably remember it if I had a hint but the old gray cells are losing their grip. Google was not a help. Thanks for any insight that can be provided.

There are forums on the site. You should find discussion there; those folks are on top of everything Randall.

Aha! Sure enough, I didn't see the word "forum" on the top lines so I stupidly assumed that there wasn't any such animal. By now I should know better than to jump to such unwarranted conclusions. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. The answer was available there.

I had to look since you brought it up. A draft was mistakenly posted then rolled back.

Anything xkcd always seems to have overthought/wrought pseudoconspiracy come to mind... and I love it!

There is an xkcd for .. EVERYTHING..... I spent a fun half hour at my desk last night talking to two other IT guys about two of Randall's works that I had posted on my wall.

The SUDO one still makes me grin... it's the one that I instantly think of when I think of XKCD.
Well, that, and whenever I have to generate a password using some asinine combination of obscura, I think "Correct Horse Battery Staple".
