Account Closure & Post Deletion Policy

Recommended Posts

From time to time we get emails or PMs from people saying "delete my account and all my posts". The answer to this is that we do not delete posts en masse as a matter of policy. There are several reasons for this policy:


Mass deleting posts like this will probably leave holes in threads which may make those threads difficult to understand

Even if we did delete every single post, your comments would remain wherever they were quoted by someone else

If you have abided by our forum rules, then there shouldn't be any reason to delete your posts

Notwithstanding all the above, once you post something - anything - on the internet, it's out there somewhere forever in perpetuity, because of caches, mirrors and backups. So not much point asking for us to remove it from one site.

As for deleting accounts, we don't do this either - it leaves nasty looking gaps in threads. If you do not wish to use the forum any more, then simply stop visiting. Your account will remain dormant. If you want to have your email address removed from our system, just ask and it'll be done.

Any questions or comments please feel free to raise a support ticket to discuss further.
