Looking for a discussion you thought was here? One of three things could have happened.
It could have been launched or "discarded".
Discarded just means that someone thought it had come to a resolution not needing a launch. It can be restored.
Just push the "restore" button on the Launches list.
You thought you had written it up or read it here,
but it was all just a dream or an elaborate daylight fantasy. Don't feel bad. It happens to us all.
