Poor Porchetech, isn't going to delete another thread
Yup.

...but that might give the database indigestion and the whole board would go down.

...which might be a good thing...

What about the the threads?

I'm assuming that the threads will remain and the second poster (that's not me) will automatically become the first author and the first post of that particular thread will simply be a reply? That would render all those threads pointless because OP content would have been deleted..

You needn't worry about your legacy (hate that stupid, useless word), it's "All Threads by", gone, zero, zilch, nada. All the other posters in your threads will have the posts deleted, but will not be banned, but maybe we need to take a look at that too...

...well everything has it's price, but the database would probably crash before or during that, so it's all moot.

Maybe if you guys just paid p-tech more, he wouldn't be so distracted with his p-tech BS, and could actually end all spam.

John, you are quite right about doing a mass delete of something with a ton of posts. Been there, done that and the database went nuts. I think I caused a blackout on the east coast doing it.
