    If you need to get back to a thread you posted in many people already know you'll find the thread by searching your posting history in >My Profile. But you may not find the post you authored because the post was randomly and automatically deleted from My Profile. Oh the horror. Not everyone subscribes to each and every thread. In order to keep our house/the subscription section organized and free of extraneous data, some of us don't subscribe to every thread we post in.

    As an example, I've been here for two days, just two days, and some of my posts are no longer found in My Profile, they're M.I.A.! It's very odd that you can't access each and every post you made from day one, especially in a forum that deals with technology (you might expect that in a forum that deals with basket weaving).

    A person might want to get back to a thread they posted in. There could be any number of good reasons for going back to an older post and/or a prior post they made three days ago, three months ago or three years ago. But you can't do that with the current system. That's odd, strange, inconvenient, and a little troubling especially when we're talking about a discussion forum that deals with How to Make Money Online for Dummies. Just as worse, it also means we can't access each and every post made by a fellow poster that we hold in high regard.

    One has to wonder: why doesn't BHW keep all posts, and not just a percentage of them, in My Profile?
