I started a thread and have added several posts that say mostly "thanks" although I use those posts to bump the thread. Can I make ADV more efficient by deleting those posts or does ADV keep them with a deleted flag on? When I have a question I'll often post it in a mega-thread instead of starting a new thread. Does a new thread take more resources than a single post or are they stored the same with different relationship data? THanks. ADV really is efficient -- the webs barely reach where I live but ADV sends a slimmer page than other forums. No bloat.
