The problem is that there has been a huge amount of time and effort building up the personal threads. Starting that over, not sure I'll bother. Just look for another forum. If the personal threads can be moved there then some are there, some are not, etc. Gets crazy. If they were to move the entire subforum under breakroom it would work but then that isn't hugely where it belongs and if that could have happened would it not have been a better option than the deleting? I would still ask the moderators to respect what the members have made the forum. If an entire subsection has been against the rules, if the entire community pretty much has been made up of breaking that rule, perhaps the rule needs to change? This is a question not in any way a demand.
