Hey Robert, it's Rui.
Many many thanks for your post, it's totally relevant and important.
So I checked out the settings and the Forum has a limit of 1000 posts (replies included I believe). And luckly you mentioned it, because we were on the verge of loosing some precious Nigel Silver posts and comments.
So I deleted some 50 posts, mainly update info, old news and in a few days I'll clean some more.
Most of the posts dating back to late 2010 and early 2011 are now archived, and the rest will follow, so we're not in any danger of losing them. You can access them here in case they ever disappear from the site:
