Do posts, and their subsequent threads ever expire, or is it necessary to request that they be deleted?

don't think that tey expire and if they do then it takes a long time because in the user CP it has an option to show threads and the drop down box goes up to a year, hen its show all threads. So threads are likely around for more than a year.

Posts definitely don't expire and are usually not deleted either. They just fade into the past..but resurface when people search for specific terms that a post might address.

We need to keep all the old posts for new users to learn..hardly worth re-hashing issues over and over again..:)

We've seen questions solved after a year or so. We keep all of them. We have sub-forums for Outdated Tutorials and Tips (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=255), and previous Development versions (http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=237), though.
