    I would, but it makes the database bigger with the benefit going only to a couple % of members. You can download all your PMs in a few formats and then delete all but the newest ones, though. That way they are backed up and you have space again.

    Did this a few days ago and it's great.

    I guess if I was a seller here, I would want to keep the records of back-n-forth with customers.

    Is there any chance that the minimum number of characters required for a search be reduced to three? As is, it makes searching for some information--like on APC or NDC--pretty difficult.

    No, it is apparently a limitation in MySQL which is what provides the search index. However, the Google search works well for smaller words.

    To search styleforum with google, type site:styleforum.net and the term you want to search for. It's very handy.

    Example: http://www.google.com/search?q=+site...eforum.net+ndc


    Or you can just click on the search link and type in what you're after in the Google box.

    Busy day today.

    Deleted a bunch of racist posts in the Obama suts thread and squirreled a thread named after a female body part's fragrance.

    Happy Happy Joy Joy

    More trolling, borderline racist comments from one of yesterday's combatants.
