Members ID field after deleting...

After deletion, all post records are updated with a member ID value as 0.

This behaviour is logic, but I think is not useful thing: as forum admin it is sometimes useful to search in messages that were written by a deleted user - and in some cases it would be easier to perform some searches with this ID.

What do you think?
Krabi Krabong & programming :D

The search filter-on-user does not work at all for deleted users for this reason, and because doing it any other way would be even slower.
