I click on the blanket thread and am taken to the list of threads.
Is the -1 because of the cold?
Refresh the browser and try again. I merged two very similar threads into this one
The reason you saw -1 was because the thread which got merged into the other one, and which should have been totally gone, contained one deleted post. I rarely delete posts but sometimes, when merging threads, I remove posts which are totally meaningless.
I think you viewed it as the merging was going on because the deleted post is from neither of those two people shown.
I have now deleted that thread entirely so it should be gone.
