Where's the other SRP thread?

There was a thread discussing whether SRP had any abrasives or "cut" to it and it seems to have mysteriously vanished. Only just contributed it, went out for half an hour and it's gone. Anyone?

Fair enough, any particular reason?

Sounds like we missed an interesting one too...

At risk of starting it all over again, what were the main questions in the thread?

I'm probably a little guilty of perpetuating that the current formula of SRP has little or no cut or at least less than it used to - I read it on the internet and assumed it must be true!

The question remains "how much" correction can you get from SRP?

I think there is a confusion that polishing is the same as compounding. Not even a dedicated polish will remove swirls and this is highlighted in this video from Larry:

https://youtu.be/z63QAlLMgSM

so quite how SRP does (and by hand..!) is beyond me. We all know it's important to use an IPA after any paint correction to remove residual oils and see the 'true' finish. Once you remove the fillers from SRP that will show you how good it is at any correction. Can you remove these fillers with just IPA...?
