15 is inaccurate.  "Y'all" is always plural.  "All y'all" is redundant.  You will never hear an individual addressed as "y'all."  Unless the individual is large enough to be mistaken for multiple people...
I can see that.. :o

Not sure if it's still true but a lot of towns in central and northern PA would close schools on opening day of deer season.

So you have the ability to destroy not just the entire thread, but everyone else's contribution to that thread?

It seems a lot of power for a forum member who is not a moderator.  Deleting your own stuff is kinda dumb in most instances, but deleting other peoples' contributions is simply wrong.  We've seen it done rather cavalierly twice in the last few weeks.

I agree it is too much power for a non-moderator.  But I'm not sure deleting others' posts is done deliberately.  [Which thread was the other one that disappeared?  All I was aware of was yesterday's "WWWOOO!!!" thread.]

I don't know this for sure, but the problem may be that I don't think there would be any type of warning that if you delete the first post in a thread that the entire thread will disappear: all posts by everyone.  So if one is trying to eliminate their past comments for whatever reason, it may not be possible to know in advance that everyone else's subsequent comments will disappear as well (i.e. it may just say the usual, "are you sure you want to delete your post?").  It certainly wouldn't seem intuitive that everything coming later in the thread would disappear, because if one's comments in the middle of a thread are quoted in a future comment by someone else, even if you delete the original post you wrote, the later quoted stuff remains.

It's so funny how we don't talk anymore.

"Y'all" is always plural. 
I've been referred to as "y'all" when sitting alone in a restaurant by the waitress.

It's also an old song lyric.  I heard it recently and found it to be true a true statement on a number of levels.

Just tried an experiment: I deleted the (1 page only) "Christmas RAAARGH" thread. While my post count went down, the "number of likes" remained the same.

So we can have ghost likes?  Likes from posts long since deleted from this mortal coil?  Creepy...
