So let me see if I understand everything up to this point. Taking Sunshine out of the equation:
-the database saves the IP and info of every post until it falls off the catalog, at which point it is automatically deleted from the database
-BUT, if a post is deleted through mod action, or an ip is banned, the ip information is recorded in a log and remains even after the info would normally be removed from the database.
Does that sound about right or am I totally off base?
