Haha! I asked that exact same question once. Not here, somewhere, it doesn't matter. The point is, was, that I had been verbally abused for posting in a thread, because it was "too old", and I, being the foolish and naive idiot at the time, asked the obvious question.

I think the answer was a definitive "it depends".

Anywhere from instantly to several days. My cite is that I watched AMC's The Walking Dead.

One reason I rarely post, is that I don't understand the agreement, and the various sets of rules here.

Good news, unless you feel the need to speak, one can enjoy any forum with little risk.

Good idea. It can be very dangerous to post here without fully understanding the Squid Clause.

Ain't that the way it always goes? A Squid Clause, but does anybody tell you about it? Noooo. They just sit back and wait ....
