Yeah, all of ONCE's posts are gone. It's a shame because that dude was really well-researched and posted some great, informative stuff RE: OUATIA. All we have left from him are the stuff he posted that was quoted in other people's posts. But his own posts are gone. I have no idea why he did that. Other people have canceled their accounts but their posts have remained.

He's explained at least a couple times:

- he was spending too much time on the board (hence the high quality posts)
- his wife wasn't happy about it (girls always make you chose between Sergio and them)
- it was kind of an addiction (just like Drink) so to stop himself from coming back he deleted his account
- he still came back for a short period of time here and there, with new accounts
- he had no idea deleting his account was gonna delete the posts

Is that so?
Normally, or at least in other forums the posts remain when an account is deleted. And the account remains then as "guest". If one wants to delete his posts he has to do this manually, but before he deletes his account.

I doubt he would do that. I mean the whole idea was that he was spending too much time. Why take even MORE time undoing what you already took too much time doing?
Anyway, he was trying to fight an addictive behaviour. That can lead to strange actions. The point is he had his reasons.

If any deleted account automatically deletes any post of this member, several threads could become difficult to read. There are even forums in which you can't alter a post after a few hours, so that nobody can delete any of his older posts.

But then every forum software is different, and if here the posts are directly connected with the account, this should be changed if possible. Not that every thread in this forum has a great value, which should be preserved for the future, but some have.

Yea what's up with your sig, I must have missed the initial back & forth between you and DJ. 
I was always disappointed that they didn't make a film about Francis Marion the actual "Swamp Fox" rather than what we got.

A great signature is one of the few things n_l has conntributed to this board :*

So I guess Rpower can one day decide to up and leave, and the whole RTLMYS thread would be gone? Or he can delete the thread if he gets in the mood?

There should be certain threads that can't be deleted; they should be archived. Or "locked" from deletion by a moderator.

...Leone didn't know that the Ladd Company would find a 270 min version unacceptable until 4 months after the start of editing.

Have just read Diego Gabutti's C'era Una Volta In America.

Leone discusses all his movies, actors he worked with and his involvement in Bicycle Thieves, Ben Hur etc.  Written in Italian.

There's some more information about his dispute with the Ladd Company.  Filming finished on 22 Apr 1983 and Leone expected the movie to be ready for release in December 1983.  Towards the end of August or beginning of September 1983 he learnt that a 270 min version would be unacceptable to them and in November 1983 he learnt that they intended to put everything into chronological order and make a shorter version. Apparently from day one Alan Ladd jnr had always wanted the movie to be in chronological order.

That's so awesome that they re-published it last month. I need to start saving my pennies so I can get me a copy.
