View Full Version : Pruning Advisory
08-30-10, 04:41 PM
Our disc space usage is getting rather high. Over the next week, as time permits, I will be pruning selected articles and their threads. Old jokes may be the first to go. Also on the hit list will be time-sensitive material whose newsworthiness has passed. Findings that have been replaced by newer research, and anything else that is no longer pertinent, will be looked at carefully.
I may also prune the membership list. Quite a few joined once and never returned. If you are a lurker who has not been active, this might be a good time to post something, somewhere, so that the automated process does not erase you.

Oh no! I'm history! :eek:

Not to worry. I'll peruse the list and probably drop, say, anyone who hasn't logged in in the last 12 months.

You just posted. What are you asking? Do I have to draw you a picture?

We are again running low on bandwidth and may run out before the end of the month. This is to alert you that if that should happen, all will be well again on October 1. I am not prepared to buy more bandwidth at this time.
We are also running out of disc space. I've deleted a lot of files, but I can see that mail occupies a lot of space. Please, CHECK BOTH YOUR IN-BOX AND SENT MAIL and delete as much of your mail as possible. Really, what are you saving it for?
Thanks for you help! Major changes will be coming in a couple of months.

Suggest everyone re-read the OP for this thread. Our new software has extra features, which is nice but raises our disk space usage; I've doubled it but we are still running high. The answer: pruning (see above) and being selective about the articles we are posting. We have a unwritten rule that all threads begin with a study or some sort of evidence, because it lends credence to a post. Our OPs traditionally furnish evidence of functional foods, or helpful herbs, or preventive measures, or breaking health news, or how to deal with (name a condition). We rarely reprint blogs; when we do, the bloggers are either MDs, well-known health researchers or health professionals: Jon Barron, Byron Richards, Weston Price, Alice Wessendorf. I prefer to leave anecdotes to other health sites; they merely demonstrate that each of us reacts differently to the same stimulus. If you wish to share a blog you truly feel is invaluable, I suggest you post it in the Blogspot. Finally, please be aware of repetition; just because a topic is health-related (e.g. mammograms) does not mean it contains new or updated information.
Before posting, I ask that you consider the above. I don't wish to discourage useful information, only to conserve space and avoid repetition. Thank you, all — I value your participation!
I hope the alot doesn't get pruned. I luv the alot a lot.

Oh no, the Alot is priceless. The Alot is part of the Permanent Collection, housed in glass, along with Dave Barry's Colonoscopy.
