Threads never get deleted. The only time there is a deletion is under really rare circumstances.

And in case you are wondering, "rare circumstances" usually means that a post's content is in gross violation of one of the LQ Rules, such as wildly inappropriate language, abusive comments, blatant spam, etc. As trickykid already explained, though, the standard LQ policy to to never delete posts. (Note that sometimes a thread can get moved to another forum or merged with an existing thread, and so it might not still exist in the original forum it was posted to, however the thread itself is still active and accessible. -- J.W.

Not much. From the last time Jeremy told us, the database is still fairly small, I think he said it was around 500mb or so at one time.. probably 700 or 800mb at this time is my guestimate, could be more though.

If it's from 2002, it'll be in the archives. Which thread are you after?

You can search for all threads from the beginning. But by default the search mechanism does it only from one year ago. You'll have to change the search option to look for posts from the beginning.
