I got the gist from what was quoted. He went off on one cos Stat Mech asked him to post it the correct place.

At this time a supernatural explanation is not required. :-D

Maybe that's the answer. From now on, everyone responding to VFX should quote his posts. That way we'll all be able to figure out what's going on after he's deleted the originals.

{!#%@}, if he posts at SSF again, someone should quote what he posts even without a reply! :mrgreen:

Are you able to restore all of these deleted posts? I have no idea what was going on here.

I would have to restore a backup of the database to a separate installation of the forum and copy/paste back into the posts where content was deleted by the author of the post. I don't want to do that because it would be unfair to the person who deleted their post content. Plus who could say what that person originally posted? If it was me, I'd claim that that jerk Pyrrho faked my posts!

Also it would be a bit of work for me and I don't think it's worth the effort.

Trust me I doubt that person has anything important to say.
