Good grief. No, you wouldn't be able to do that. Read again. Am I just not explaining it clearly enough? I don't know how much clearer I can be.

Don't think this is a "stupid" question, but on the topic of deleting posts.. Tank, if you were to delete an entire account would it be possible to automatically delete all of the posts made by that account as well? Just curious.

Yes, it can be done, and actually has been done before. Particularly when there's a spam-bot with a lot of posts.

If you'd get one dollar for every single color code that is used in one of your servers, how long does it take til Forbes and the taxman recognize you?

The origin of the bulldog dates back to the early 1600's, and it seems the shih tzu may have emerged just a few years later. I think that joke is of roughly the same vintage.

do you say lose or looser?

http://loseloose.com/
http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=looser

i'll make sure to say that loosers are losers next time i enter a df server :P That's perhaps the only field where you can't distinguish the two terms.

And MB53, would you agree with that:
