No, we can't. We would have to search all of your posts, individually. There are no moderator tools to make that any faster. There's no way any moderator can spare the time and energy for it, and it's not our job. It's your responsibility to refrain from posting anything you don't want public in the first place, and if you suddenly change your mind about something you've posted, it's your responsibility to either take it down or live with it.

Our software doesn't work that way. The only possible way to come on is to log in through an active account. If you were deleted, you wouldn't have an active account to log in through. That's an unalterable fact.

See here and here for details on the no account deletions policy.

We don't edit people's posts at the request of others. We let you have control over your own posts, but not over other people's--so your right to edit and delete ends when it starts interfering with other people's posts. See here for edit and delete policy details.

Yeah, I was thinking of making a thread on the moderator forum suggesting the possibility of making an option for a poster to lock their posts from being quoted. Like if someone doesn't ever want to be quoted, there could be an option/button/setting to make their quotes unquotable. lol

Obviously, we'd run into the issue of people copying/pasting posts, but doing that against someone's settings/explicit desire, could be a deletable offense. Like if I had the setting for no quoting me, and someone copied/pasted, I could report/flag it to a moderator and have it removed. Does that seem fair?

I think it would make people feel safer and cultivate a less paranoid, more protective culture, without burdening the moderators too much. It could be for posts going forward, once the setting is created, so moderators don't have to look through all previous posts/threads.

This is a very good idea. I hope it gets implemented.

Re: Chatter and natter 😍😍

Thanks!

I made a thread suggesting this idea on the Help with Forums and Suggestions forum. Please post your concerns! I think it would be beneficial for the moderators to understand this is an issue we are concerned with.

Also I was going to post earlier, like a half hour ago, but the whole website server went down. Did you notice it as well?
