What if, what you see on other forums, it once would happen that a core group runs away, and 60% of the topics gets deleted? What would remain?
I already answered this one above: of course I'd prefer not to delete the users' posts, but if they ask for it it is simple to do and I'll do it. In my experience the kinds of people who would ragequit like that aren't the kinds of people who share the most useful contributions anyway ;).

The theoretical problem here would be when someone ragequits a project, he demands that all his code (which can be traced back to him due to version control) be removed, leaving the project in a pickle. I haven't read up on this case specifically, but I'm pretty sure the project would not in fact be forced to remove such data - which was, after all, consciously and explicitly contributed under a license detailing the terms of the contribution.
