Because it's always the entertaining ones that get killed.

Make your bed and lie in it.
How would POPI affect that. I wonder...
I imagine you can request that your account and all its content be deleted after POPI implementation.

Yes, my suggestion is [intentionally] as absurd as the OP's. There is no reason why a forum member should not be able to request that their thread be removed and just because the request is made it doesn't mean that it will be carried out.

Tell you what - two birds with one stone - Don't allow people to request thread deletions, and there will be no reason for people to request that people should not be allowed to request thread deletions.

In all seriousness, I understand your semantic point here, but all we see from our side are the ones that do get removed, and there are times, such as the one from last night, where I don't understand why it went.

It's irritating contributing to a thread, having a conversation, and then it just all vanishes into the void. I get it if it's a particular shitshow, but LD50's thread had turned into (from what I could see) just a bunch of mostly harmless banter.

I very nearly made one last night with yes and no both as selectable options...
I chose both options all at the same time. But I read the poll as 'people should not be able to request thread deletions' and voted on that. Then I realised the poll question might actually be 'should people be able to request thread deletions?' (Nice question mark btw). Sorry but could you change the question to 'shouldn't people be able to request thread deletions?’ so that my existing vote is useful for data analysis?

I sort of added it as a joke after you commented, and how now further compounded matters by selecting yes accidentally myself, where I ought to have selected no. Also, you can't edit polls, as far as I can see.

So, rather fittingly, this poll is about as useful as the thread from last night. :laugh:

Yup love the poll, only following in the tradition of last night :p Which reminds me this thread must be a bit of mindfsck for anyone not online last night o_O

There are worse things in life to worry about.
