Archive Forum Posts Prior to 2010

Outdated and old content should be removed from the active material, and placed in the forum archive.

While my personal feelings are that the dated content should be deleted completely, for the privacy and protection of those children involved, it should at least be archived with the pre-2005 material.

1) Prior to 2005, this site used a different, much more antiquated format. During the change-over, something was lost in the conversion from old format to new format making archival research difficult to do. In fact, I think some history got lost.

2) No matter how archaic they may seem, old posts, this forum's history, should never be deleted, much less moved to Archives. Those posts not hurting anybody by being where they are. Old posts should remain untouched. Our history can't be replaced.

LEAVE EVERYTHING AS IS WHERE IS.

I would recommend locking them to prevent raising of the dead.
