    We had a troll this morning that posted graphics PMs to alot of people and was banned and I could STILL view the PM and I warned people about it and they STILL saw it before my warning.

    I don't understand how that's relevant.
    Could you explain that a bit more?

    I'm assuming that it's because these kids aren't as tech savvy/need to be protected from dirty things on the internet and we can do that by auto-deleting PMs from banned people eventhough in hindsight sometimes there are useful PMs out there which should be preserved EVEN IF/WHEN the original PM-er gets banned for a mistake later in the future.

    Sometimes when people get banned the contents of their pms can still be valuable to others in the conversations. Also sometimes banned members get unbanned in the future, so no we wont be doing that.

    When banning someone spamming there is an option to remove all PMs. It's just that it's not checked by default so people dealing with such spam needs to make sure it's checked.

    I actually know about the incident you are talking about. When mods ban an account with the spambot button there is an option to delete all the PMs someone sent out already that is unchecked by default. In the future under similar circumstances it should be used.

    Anyway closed.

    edit: minox beat me to it
