Default Badge info forever

Just a quick technical question.
Once a long standing forum member has passed away, is his or hers albums/ posts ever deleted, or are they left for us all see for ever.

I think not the posts, one very prolific former member R.I.P. Still has his posts in the older threads. A tribute to his contribution to the Forum? Or the threads would not make sense if deleted? Not sure about the albums.

Regards,
Philip

Knowledge never dies. As long as the family of the lost member have no objections to their remaining, the author had contributed to the sum of knowledge - and you never know, something could be lost in a blanket deletion.

The posts remain unaltered if a member passes.

Knowledge does die.
