moderated Re: bug? or bad feature? "Likes" by former members go to error message, should be removable? #suggestion #bug



 I agree that messages and other content should remain in the archives after a member leaves a group, of course. But I don't think their profile should be accessible to the members. And indeed, it is not. The problem is that currently, that inaccessibility, which I feel sure was intentional on Mark's part, includes or is achieved in a buggy way ('page not found').

I find the current situation odd, that's for sure..

It is my feeling that the online archive serves as "the historical record" and just because one chooses to leave a group does not and should not result in one's actions while a member of said group being erased upon one's departure.  One's messages do not disappear from the archive if one leaves a group (and I know of no way to force that to happen and would protest it were it to be asked for) and I see no reason for one's "Like" actions to do so, either.

It could be argued either way about access to one's public profile, but I think that should be maintained, too.  What one elects to do online "in public" at the moment of its being done should be expected to remain public in perpetuity.

The psychology of adultery has been falsified by conventional morals, which assume, in monogamous countries, that attraction to one person cannot co-exist with a serious affection for another.  Everybody knows that this is untrue. . .
