Database Errors Accessing Long Threads

Along with other FlyerTalk members, I have noticed sporadically in the past couple of months that I get a database error when attempting to access long threads such as the and threads. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to why this happens, as it appears to occur on a completely random basis and is not repeatable from my end. Usually, after one or more attempts, I eventually gain access to those threads.

In fact, I just encountered this problem again. This is the message that I get:
Database error
The FlyerTalk Forums database has encountered a problem.
Please try the following:

* Load the page again by clicking the Refresh button in your web browser.
* Open the home page, then try to open another page.
* Click the Back button to try another link.

The forum technical staff have been notified of the error, though you may contact them if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

			AND post.userid NOT IN (deleted)

Could you please look into what could be the cause of this problem?

Thank you in advance.
