yes we'll still be able to view the stuff we posted after it's closed. i am wanting (someday?) to go back to dd's ddc and read what i posted then.
for who starts the new thread you don't have to copy/paste the info. you can click "reply with quote" then go create new thread in LWAB and below the text box will be a blue link "you have 1 quoted post that is not in this thread do you wish to use it here?" and it'll copy it all for you. (then you can delete the [quote ] [/ quote]
