I wonder if one of the reasons they're saving this thread at letsrun is to keep a record of IP addresses in case Kip goes to court?
Storage of IP addresses should NOT be tied to the display of postings (although you never know with this ancient software).
Modern database design handles "deletion" like this:
- ALL entries have e.g. title, numerical identifier, and timestam-flags like created_at, updated_at and deleted_at.
When you "moderate" a comment or posting and you click the "delete" button, the flag "deleted_at" gets set.
List output, like a full thread view, is set to select all relevant entries without deleted_at timestamp.
