RE: Thread does not exist...
It doesn't exist? Yup. There is no falsifiable evidence it existed. There is no contemporary written accounts by unbiased writers that it existed. How are we supposed to believe it existed when it can't even be proved to exist. Geesh! Stupid people.


Oh wait.................

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

If you use goodbye Spammer you can quickly and easily delete all threads created by the user. It should only be used in this manner for spammers.

If you are banning a user with this tool you must remember to untick the delete posts option.

Maybe the default should be the other way 'round. Consider

Why on earth would it be like that? We ban far more spammers in a single week that we ban users.

And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Not only that but it is a tool that is not meant to be used on actual users just spambots. What happened here was an anomaly and is not really applicable to the real purpose of the tool.

It's a tenet of UI design that the default be the least destructive option.
Destruction should always require intentioned action.

Yes and we have a tool for that, the Goodbye Spamer is the Nuclear Option. No need to tone it down because it is intended to be all encompassing.

And yet, if used inadvertantly, it is nuclear. And that is what happened and that is the point.
