    Would Admin like to comment on the apparent discrepancy between being banned, and voluntarily resigning, especially in regards to the search function.
    If you are banned, your posts remain, and they can be retrieved via the search facility.
    However, if you voluntarily resign, your posts remain in the forum, but they cannot be found or retrieved via the search function.

    Those that have voluntarily resigned are easily recognised because their username appears in black in all of their posts.
    However, it is not possible to recognise who has been banned, one can only assume, because they no longer post.

    If anyone else wants to comment I am happy to discuss it, as long as the comments are kept to a discussion, and do not deteriorate into allegations, abuse, etc.
