Hi. I am curious. I would like to know, can you delete the messages you send, or the messages you receive from others, in PM, or are they permanent?

Please let me know- thank you.

@JGoldman10,
They are permanent. However, being said, I believe there is a certain limit to the amount of messages that are retained I don’t know if it’s 20 or something close to that. These are messages only you can see of course because it’s private I still have some from years ago.

@Ragman,

once you've hit that threshold, the oldest PM exchange disappears when someone new PMs you...

@JGoldman10,
Everything you post on the internet is permanent.

@maxdancona,
Not unless you can delete it, or can get someone else to delete it for you.

Some sites I have posted on were taken down without notice. In some cases, I couldn't find archived pages containing what I posted.

A big Scot is sitting in a bar, ranting as he downs his pints. He pounds his hand on the bar, says "You see this bar? I built this bar with me own two hands, a finer piece of work you'll newver find, but do they call me MacGregor the bar-builder? No!!" and he downs his pint and buys another.

He points out the window. "See that dock in the lake? I built that dock with me own hands, a finer piece of work you'll newver find, but do they call me MacGregor the dock-builder? No!!" and downs his pint.

He next pointed out the chair and table in the corner, the fence outside, all sorts of similar projects, and says "I built that with me own two hands, a finer piece of work you'll newver find, but do call me MacGregor the handyman? No!!"

He stares into his beer, whispers, "And you **** one sheep."

@maxdancona,
Get your facts straight. It's not the Scots who shag sheep, it's the Welsh.

@izzythepush,
I always thought bagpipes might sound like a sheep being shagged, because how would I know?

@bobsal u1553115,
Did you like the clip? Reginald D Hunter is like John Oliver in reverse, very well known over here, not so much back in Georgia.

@izzythepush,
Thanks for turning me on to Reginald, just spent an hour watching a show he recorded in London years ago. Good stuff.

@bobsal u1553115,
He is really good, he's done some good documentary stuff too. All 3 parts are on youtube.

It's interesting because he moved here because of how he was treated and in many ways he hates the South. In the three programmes he does mellow and find things about the South he likes.



His mother called him Reginald because she didn't want him living the life of a lot of black men from Georgia, and the name was a good start.
