I have a quick question. After responding to a post, I recalled seeing a similar post someplace else, so I looked for all posts by that person. Realizing that he had posted multiple times since joining one day ago, with all posts advocating a particular web site, I asked what his connection was to that site. Less than 5 minutes later, all traces of that poster were gone, including the thread to which I had responded, with no explanation or notification. Is this likely something done by a moderator? Do they completely remove obvious advertising that way?

That is probably what happened. If you see blatant advertising, I believe you're supposed to click on that red triangle, up by the rep scales, to report it/bring it to the attention of the moderators.

I believe that is also how the mods handle trolls

This is how we deal with spam, usually. These posts are still visible for the staff so if you have any doubts, DM me some details (which forum, username, etc) and I can check it.
