That depends entirely on how much effort the Forum Admin are prepared to put into it.

It took me several hours to seek out and delete or modify posts relating to one member who had got himself into an embarrassing position with his employers. In a few instances it was appropriate to remove entire threads but mostly it was possible to edit them so that nothing looked out of place.
