I am doing some house cleaning and deleting a bunch of messages I had archived (from folks I've swaped with) and I'm finding myself wondering.....is there a good reason to save some of these messages once the transaction has been completed satisfactorily?

Any good reasons to save those messages (or even some of them) indefinitely?

If they've all been completed successfully you should be fine.  I guess you could go through and make sure that you've buddied any members with whom you had similar book tastes.

The only messages I archive are ones from RAOKs or Wishes I'm granting that contain addresses. That way, I don't have to ask for an address twice.

I only archive my buddies' addresses and birthdays.

Either good or bad transactions, addresses, or problem people.
