Oh, I don't know, I've really cut back my support lately, but it shows you something that even recently I've been at least as active as *multiple people combined* out of their support team.
I did not notice the cut back (since i'm fairly new), but I do notice the lack of response from the official support team.
(not to mention pending posts that still awaits approval frm the moderators)

Out of your current behavior other there? As far as I know, were they to ban you, they'd get a very visible community backlash.
Very visible indeed...

Well, the fact that I've been deleting my posts is a fairly visible sign, and one that actually borders on violating the CLA.

That and the comments I've referred to privately about the inherent lack of respect the team has from former team members, over the 'core values' that are apparently sacred yet no better than toilet paper.

May I ask why?

Why the delete or why the violation of the CLA?

The latter is because the CLA protects things that 'discuss or improve the Work'. So if they want to preserve it they will have to do some work.

The former is complicated. I'm not allowed to link to Wedge generally, nor allowed to mentioned it really, under threat of moderation.

Since I dislike these rules, and have no real way of protesting the time I otherwise spent, I'm doing the only thing I can do about it. Note that I'm removing older ones first.

Besides, I figure people are going to notice my post count going down once it really starts to go down.

That, and the fact that butchs, in his self righteous, pigheadedness called me a troll more than once for suggesting things in his mod's threads, that I have no imagination and resort to stealing his ideas. That really just cemented it, though.

Basically you are doing the opposite direction instead to getting higher post count... :lol:

If really good people bid farewell to SMF, I wonder what SMF have now... :hmm:

I've done something similar in a forum, Arantor. I've prepared a php script to manage that... What kind of script did you wrote to accomplish the deletion?
Krabi Krabong & programming :D

I was doing it by hand, since writing a script to log in to sm.org as me seemed like hard work :lol:

Oh.... If you want, I can share the code with you (yeah: not the best design - but it works).

40000 posts to delete 'by hand' are a pretty difficult task! :niark:
