Who would I ask about this? [Deleting posts and threads]

I’d like all my posts and threads that I made to be cleared so I can have a fresh start! Thanks! <3:p

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but it ain’t gonna happen.

As a matter of policy, we don’t delete posts or threads except in exceptional cases (or for spamming or trolling - which will get you banned).

I don’t see anything in your eight posts that would give any reason for deletion.

Thread title edited to indicate subject.

Nobody will hold your past against you, unless you’re an unrepentant ass about some grave error, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here (everyone reading this thread will, like me, have searched your posting history).

Done! Well, I for one have forgotten each and every one of your prior posts. That would be seven. I’ll never forget this OP.

Curious, what is it about your posts that you don’t like? Seems like pretty standard posting to me.

Um…possibly, and I’m just guessing here, that they may have an account elsewhere under the same name that has less flattering posts and doesn’t want them potentially associated?

I’m curious for the same reason. There have been posters who I wish I could brain-bleach from my memory but this isn’t a very bad collection or horribly revealing in some way.

What posts?:confused:

I hope that the OP realizes that by posting such a question, he/she is inviting others to examine the prior posts to see what’s so embarrassing. Personally, I was completely unaware of your existence until I saw this thread. You might want to read about the Streisand effect.

Oh, wait. I think I see what’s so embarrassing. You’re right to be concerned.

Just kidding.

If you align the text of the posts with Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, then do a series of ciphers on the both, finally taking only the first letter of each new paragraph, you’ll find the encoded message:


I don’t know what it means, but I know it’s terrible!

I have the cipher for that and I could tell you, but then I’d be killed.

Misread the title as “Why would I ask about this?” at first. How oddly appropriate, considering that’s what everyone is asking you.

I suspect the “fresh start” the AOP is talking about isn’t at the SDMB, but on the internet in general. IOW, he/she has decided to cover his/her tracks & become invisible.

Not gonna happen, but it’s a nice idea.

I don’t want all of mine cleared. Just the ones where I say something stupid.

The OP has plenty of stuff to be ashamed of. Seriously, this is why every account should be under a unique name.

I think you just summoned Cthulu

If I asked that, my post count would drop to about 3.

Reminds me of one of my favorite lines from a pulpish novel:
