Disappearing threads using RSS and Feedly?

I'm troubleshooting a problem I'm having with the FlyerTalk RSS feed. It seems as if articles are being posted on the site, linked to from the RSS feed, and then removed from the site. Can one of the admins for the site explain why the following articles are cached by Feedly but do not seem to be available (anymore?) on the main site?

Will hope charge me for stay I didn't take?
Zipties on luggage?
Help! Global entry revoked.
I walked away from a return trip
Best Seats for couple with baby in first
Passport check on domestic connecting leg after international flight?

(I've also connected with the people at Feedly, who are also looking into the same. )

Only looked at the first three, but there are current threads on these, not articles, a couple of whch have slightly different titles. Not sure if that helps at all.

Will hotel charge me for stay I didn't take?
Zipties on luggage?

They're not articles. They're forum posts, as ft101 pointed out.

Thanks for the comments back.

I wonder why the feed in my news aggregator shows links to articles and links to forum posts in the same place. I've gone back to the good folks at Feedly and asked for their help to troubleshoot this further. I'll revert back with new findings!

The guys from Feedly, the news aggregator I use, said that the feed I subscribe to is FlyerTalk ? The world's most popular frequent flyer community and this must from time to time somehow get forum posts included too. But those forum posts come with links that are not correct. For example, the 3 listed by ft101 show up in my Feedly with the following links :

https://www.flyertalk.com/articles/w...idnt-take.html
https://www.flyertalk.com/articles/z...n-luggage.html
https://www.flyertalk.com/articles/h...y-revoked.html

@IBobi: any thoughts on why those items were at one point included in the rss feed? Especially the incorrect URL seems odd.

Maybe once the forum threads are removed from the home page, the old feedly link breaks because they're not articles any longer

Ah, so the forum posts are published as an article on the homepage and then get deleted?
That would explain it.
