When you leave these forums are all your posts removed or do they live on?

Re: The hereafter?

unless the account is deleted - as opposed to being banned - then the be shown as being from anonymous

Of course not being familiar with how it works I could be completely wrong but I seem to remember that happening with a couple of posters where there were username problems

Re: The hereafter?

Nobody really "leaves" this forum now anyway. Accounts on it don't seem to ever be closed down or deleted.. with the exception of one that I can remember who continually upset everyone as much as he could..

Re: The hereafter?

When we are all wiped out, someone form another world will do an archaeological dig on earth and try to make sense of our ancient posts.  They might even ascribe supernatural powers to them and end up with the gospels of Oldjim and 7up, the latter being particularly significant since they also find bottles of the elixir used in rituals honouring this sage.
