I get why you want to get rid of it.
I for one - and maybe this is somehow related to my tendency to restrict food or maybe my restriction comes from this tendency - have what I like to call reverse hoarding: I compulsively "purge" my life of things that aren't used anymore or don't fit at the moment. Ironically I don't purge food that's been eaten. Real purging is only purging I don't do. However, I will clean out the cabinets and fridge a lot - I have the fridge of an ana girl even though I am not one. I "purge" my closet and belongings, donating what can be donated and tossing/recycling what can't. I "purged" diaries of bad/useless pages which is why they never lasted or end up really thin. I want to "purge" my blog or edit it of mistakes constantly and it's just a small rambling that's on this site and I JUST started it last month. I "purge" my facebook photos, albums and comments. I even "purge" files at work which has gotten me in indirect trouble. My coworkers blamed the system and my inexperience. I had to stop trying to organize and "clean" everything at least at work.
So, back on topic - I get why you'd want to purge this forum of this sub-forum even though keeping it doesn't directly affect you. It doesn't fit your image of MPA. It is unused and seems like a homage to a user that was a total douche-snozzle. I get irked just seeing sub-forums but not all of the sub-forums there could be. I get anxious thinking about all the threads that died and remain forever (typos and all) in MPA space. I hate things that aren't tied up nicely. I spent some time on AVEN (for asexuality awareness) but it turns out that sexuality is a spectrum. It is more liquid than people think and at the end of a long road, I'm not asexual just less sexual than average. I just can't accept it so I throw the whole thing out the window in my head. I'm heterosexual. That's all my anti-hoarder, clean edges mind can process and that's what makes me happy. Besides, in my case, it ended up being an issue of semantics. Now, I can't go on the forum anymore because I don't feel like I belong and truthfully I don't. They'd call me demi-sexual or grey-A by their definition. SO NOT WORTH EXPLAINING TO PEOPLE TO TAKE ON THAT LABEL. And truthfully, I'm not really ana or mia or EDNOS or am I? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! It changes. I change. People who say that people never really change are wrong. We change all the time. You are both constant and fluid: at worst an idea and at best a permanent soul that shall always exist - albeit with an unknowable level insignificance - as part of the whole of all time. Immortal but evolving with every breath, every thought, every passing moment changed both by your own will and the will of every being in the universe.
Okay, that wasn't really on topic. OP, I feel you. It would clean the clutter to delete the forum. But the other side has a better argument: inclusion and support in a cold harsh world where both society and self can make a person feel worthless. They win.
Edit: I got super existential crisis here and found what I want my signature to say. Thanks lol.
