This does not appear to be the case. It used to be thread 384 on DCForumID 16, technically speaking, and the convoluted CGI URLs the Forum uses to retrieve that kind of thing don't seem to lead much of anywhere in archive searches. (Searching by URL doesn't even seem to register on google.)
It would've been something like "http://www.eyrie-productions.com/Forum/dcboard.cgi?az=read_count&om=384&forum=DCForumID16&viewmode=threaded" (that's the format the URL switches to after there are more than three replies). "om=384&forum=DCForumID16" still exists on the present Forum as the blank, wrong-subject-lined version that was left behind after the disk error happened (which, judging from the TFI thread that appeared about it, seems to have been on or about December 18 of last year).
If anyone out there was wizard enough to conjure the pre-glitched version out of the aether somehow, that'd be dope (it probably wouldn't be reintegrable into the Forum, but at least the text would exist), but I'm not optimistic. The NSA probably has it somewhere, but they'd never admit it, much less send it back. :)
