Leaving that point aside for the moment, which is probably just me making it more complicated than it needs to be:
I'd guess most of the deletions in this thread have to do with whole photo account deletions. Examples: I asked RJ to strip out all of my photographs which were hosted on their server, to save myself the work of going through them. Walling asked for the same. We know the moderators stripped mouse's photo account clean. That's three contributors to your nice thread, just off the top of my head. I doubt RJ went through this thread and made any particular deletions.
