I suppose that if I use my 'favourite' word to describe Greggy-Weggy the I'd end up upping my deleted message total?

Why? He's a big boy, he can handle a few vulgar epithets... particularly given that your own username nearly qualifies as one to begin with!

I think people are taking this whole "deletion spree" thing much too seriously. And as for the posts that actually get deleted, just try to think of them as "keyboarding practice."

dev/nul is usually where the best material is found, if you think about it.
