I think it's just called not logging on. Are people incapable of that level of self control? Maybe there's some sort of kiddy friendly software that will block chockstone for those people unable to resist?

I have disabled accounts in the past at the account holders request.

I recall (without finding a link to it), that this issue has been raised before (possibly by climbau, or at least followed up by that user-ID), and at that time the 'opting out' debate centred around/included the total wiping of a contributors posts, in the event that they 'opted out'.

I think that this issue is what climbau is referring to again this time.

My basic knowledge of how the Chockstone formatting system works (I asked the Site Author personally when he was at Mt Buffalo one time), is that posts are time based, and any deletions (by a registered User/Moderator/Site Author/hackers!!), potentially create 'orphan replies' that the time based system doesn't handle well...

Given that this is the case, and apparently can't be changed easily, then it is encumbent on contributors/posters to fully understand that their posts once posted, become part of the public domain and remain as such a part of a collective resource.

In short, if a poster is not prepared to own their opinion as posted, then they should reconsider posting it in a public domain in the first instance...

My thoughts exactly. Don't expect moderators or admin to clean up your mess.
