Best way to temporarily remove public access to a user's topics?

You can’t, at least not easily. Here’s why:

You would need the following info:

  • the user id
  • the date in UTC the bulk deletion happened
  • the post ID of each deleted topic’s OP
  • advanced knowledge of using the rails console and/or psql directly to run a very advanced SQL query as you need to clear the deleted_at field on both the topic itself and the post that is the OP of the topic.

And please don’t ask why I know this…
