    Thanks for your hard work Simon!

    Just delete all those "... you have a PM" threads.

    Yeah, those are gone !

    I seriously doubt Lars is going to start his own religion - if he did then I'd be more concerned with helping him do it than losing his crazy posts.

    Don't worry, I'm not taking a weed-whacker to it - nothing of real value is going to be deleted!

    It's more like a facebook post from 10 years ago talking about some funny cartoon you saw that day ... but the cartoon is long gone. Is anyone going to value a "Hey, look at this, it's funny !" post in the future? I doubt it ...

    I'm not struggling for space but everything takes a toll on performance and storage and it's better to clean up from time to time. Some topics are by their nature very transient, others are 'keepers' and will definitely be kept.

    Simon, I sent you a pm @ 3 weeks ago. Can you take a look? Thanks!

    If we really a tight for space then I don't imagine simply deleting posts about PMs, weather and ice creams is going to fix the problem in the long run anyway.

    Deleting Lar's posts should gain about 20% more space.

    Really? Is your dick that small that you MUST take a shot at Lars, the mentally ill?

    SMH.... I bet you never saw it that way, so here's hoping you have a new POV.

    Really, it's one more reason to take a break .................
