This means if somebody dies, people cleaning up their affairs can't delete the account even with the password. Far be it from me to tell them how to run the forum, but I wonder if this was well thought out.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.

I like the idea that all bellgabbers will forever be a part of our history, for thousands and thousands of years.

Our art, our memes, our poems, our thoughtó
Just look at us, how fine are we!
Preserved forever, not forgot,
In objects large and binary.

As I said, the people who run the forum get to do it as they see fit.

Someday, MV's youngest daughter might see fit to change the rules.

It does add some dramatic tension, knowing your posts stick around in perpetuity.  If I accomplish nothing else going forward, I know my Noory haikus will be forever.

It's to provide continuity.  For instance, user Shirleypal passed away several years ago.  She started several threads including the George Knapp one.  What would happen to the thread if her account were deleted.

I demand that when I die and my estate contacts you, that you delete every third word of my posts.  That way my concise thought will be converted to a kind of homage to Pate.  That will preserve my dead anonymity.

i think it would make more sense to start a separate website for each of your individual posts.  thoughts?

That's it!  I will not be made fun of.  I am quitting this den of iniquity and joining the wholesome fun on the mysticstars.net forum.  I will be informing anyone that will listen to me about how horrible this place is.  You have mocked me for the last time...until I get bored and post again.

Don't forget George Sendas forum. You could always try that one too.

I don't know about a NY special reason but I'm sure MV has a MO one.

I didn't expect this post to stimulate so much discussion. I'm glad it did, if course.

When I see something like this, I generally assume that there is some very good reason behind it that I'm not bright enough to see. I just wanted a little help, that's all.
