Has anyone been blocked because of this? If this gets through, I haven't :P...
Personally, I think Dr. Bob is either looking at this board very carefully, in order to observe and possibly document what happens when a board such as this is abandoned, or alternatively, he just doesn't care at all anymore. If I were him, I would never simply abandon this board without closing it. I'm not sure about the laws in the US, and I'm not even exactly sure about the laws in my jurisdiction, but I would be too scared that something bad is going to happen for which I might be held responsible. Think of someone leaving a suicide note and then proceeding to actually do it. Could he be liable? If I were him, I would not even want to take that risk. So my first option seems more likely to me.
But by the way, this is not the first time that posts have been deleted, even outside of posts by blocked members. About two or three months ago there was a thread opened on 'Medication' by what seems to have been a former poster, who basically just trashed Scott in an incredibly offensive manner. I saw the thread in the evening, and it was gone the next morning. So *someone* must be doing *something* behind the scenes.
As I have said on other occasions, it's sad to see a board with such high potential in its members just sit there and slowly disintegrate, but what can you do.
