The issue is that people come here for answers and most of us on this board try pretty hard to help others by answering their questions. I know I personally have spent over an hour trying to answer someone's questions before on multiple occasions. These questions and answers are supposed to be archived here for others with similar questions in the future. That way folks can first search for an answer prior to starting a new thread. The main purpose of this board is to help others and if thousands of posts are suddenly missing I find it very hard to believe that posts and even whole threads of substance are not missing.
