    Here, but hidden?
    I confess to not being a geek, and still don't understand all of RJ after a couple years. I was looking at an old post which was labeled "hidden/deleted member," clicked on the quote button to see who it was, and it said "Claystation said . . ." I thought that when a profile had been deleted, it did not bring up the "Member-Id said" bit. I know I have seen old posts, where clicking on the quote button brings up nothing.

    I suspect they purge the database of deleted member IDs every so often. So that's why you see nothing when you quote a hidden/deleted post. Check the date of the post. It's probably several years old. As opposed to hidden/deleted post from this past year.
