    There have been a few folks that made posts then edit them so there is nothing there. The post just says 'Last edited by ____' Then when I click on that persons user name, I see where they did that with a lot of their posts. It just made me curious about why somebody would go through and delete all of them. Any ideas?

    Quote:Maybe it was a debated issue and they commented in not such a good light? I have done that-gotten angry at the Op or the post and commented..then I calmed down and went back to delete so I don't get punished [​IMG]

    or be completely wrong on a topic and didn't realize it until after I posted..sex of bird...breed of bird...helping in an emergency situation etc... I've done it all [​IMG]

    when you become a platinum member -you can delete your whole post as if it was never posted! done that too:)

    But I mean some of these folks deleted almost all of their posts. On several different topics. You click on all posts by that user and there are mostly blank spaces.

    Yes, people do delete their posts, either they don't want to give their threads a hot debate or just mad about it.

    Or someone from home found out their password and they didn't want their family to read what they wrote.
