bobby j who could have foretold that you were in fact merely training for some Arkansas Valley choss! We should meet up in BV sometime and scrape out some cracks. RD

Yes it is.
Too bad we can't petition the ethers to restore a few critical threads.

But you know what, all of this probably exists in the way back machine web search function?

Good writing Bob!

Sounds like a pile though...

There IS quality unclimbed rock in the Valley, I've heard

I've already checked there - did not find it.
I think the reason I was able to use archive.org to find Scott's
Southern Belle story is that I had a link to its supertopo URL from one of my web pages.

This (2014) decision by supertopo to sometimes delete all of a user's posts is a very poor one.
Very disappointing and unexpected.
If I had thought they might do something like this, I would have saved all the good stuff when I first read it.
I did save Hank's Southern Belle story to my webpage, since it was so good I didn't want to risk it being lost....

I agree Clint.

Totally lame policy.

But I wouldn't be surprised if they've got it stashed. Could be very valuable at some point, and more so because of its unavailability and Scott's passing.

Well, I've recently saved 109 of my threads as MHTML documents.

No, I didn't save this one, and scores of others. Besides recently saving everything that I created, I just did a few others randomly, back when the forum was really hopping.

That's how much I trust this website. I mean it's fun and stuff, but ... I started getting the feeling I better archive my work off-site.

I DID save the Southern Belle thread through post #177, made by Clint on April 10, 2009.

It clocks in around 5.5 MB. I think that could be a bit big to e-mail without compressing it into a zipped file or some such. But if anybody wants a copy, we could probably figure it out, by using Dropbox.

Here's an example.

And here is a screenshot of the last post from my MHTML archived thread:
(I think saving through that point in the discussion archived everything Scott posted to the Southern Belle thread)
