I'm sorry, I just don't see how this is an issue. I personally don't like a long string of chit chat on my profile. I don't need the intro and welcome boxes there after I have been here for awhile and no longer need the links provided. It's the same as going through and clearing out my email every couple of week. If a question arises on a profile and has been addressed get rid of the junk on the side. I certainly, at age 44, do not need someone's permission to delete a message off my own profile. If you get offended because someone removes a message, well, in all honesty, you need to grow up and learn to play nice with others.
