Thanks Matt, That explains it.
The upgrade plan *could* specify that a column gets deleted, i dont know
if thats currently in there, and it'd only be used to delete specific
columns that WP used, and threw away.
IT'd not be set to just kill anu user columns.
Yes, Those columns are created in a new install of WP.
My guess is that its legacy, If there are plugins, or hacks still in use
today which reference those columns, and they're installed on a WP install
without those columns, its more likely the user will have strange error
messages from WP, they may not understand what they're on about, they just
wanted to use that functioanlity from this plugin from the dark ages...
Apologies for not replying to the list earlier, Turns out the list
software silently rejects emails coming from unknown email addresses, and
what would you know, i've been sending with the wrong email (Yet it still
apears locally as a reply); Shame its not possible to bounce messages
which have a valid "In-Reply-To" header, yet unknown email address? I
understand why it discards(spam), but its anoying for those who dont
notice they're using the wrong address.
