If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
When you voluntarily disclose your personal information on a bulletin board or in a chat area, that Personal Information can be collected and used by other users of the website. This may result in unsolicited messages or e-mails from other users or third parties.
