Sounds like this might be an import issue that can be fixed on the next run, could you please include this in a direct email?
Thanks i didnt know the checkbox exsited but..
What i meant was is there a way to purge them so they don't show up in the category at all (when i delete they show as deleted). My test topics weren't "professional" so to speak so i don't want people to see them.
I guess i am basically wanting to purge a category without deleting the actual category
