I know I dont post here that much anymore, but I still read stuff daily, and regularly look back at old funny threads for nostalgic reasons.

Wait. wait. WAIT FOR ME

Is there really nothing we can do to save the old posts/threads? There is SOOO much content there. Cant we archive it all in a plain-text format or something so it isn't clogging up the DB?? . Export the lot of them to html and object store (ie AWS S3) the fuck out of it.
PLEASE dont delete them all.

Does this also mean our post count will drop? :-(

just scrape them yourself, gosh
i know the first three numbers
