    Did all those get removed???... come on... those were the most binary.. no "single-cell" like instances of intelligent thought on LPSG.

    Regardless,... let's have at it...

    From my recollection, they were all removed because of the indexing burden that all of the "empty" posts, put on the server. Even a one character post needs to be indexed. Due to there lack of contribution, they were an easy call to trim.

    Remember how unstable performance was here about a year or so ago?

    I fear the pruning will soon be due again.
