Since those forums had a lot less info, I was still getting email backups and thus not much was last unlike these forums.
Late post, since this happened months ago, but I was going through the database backup and just noted that while the person cleaned out this entire forum, on that one they did very selective removal, removing about 25 percent of all posts and users.
Not sure why I didn't post this before, but at that time was busy trying to put WP back online...
And before anyone asks, I've put a multiple database backup system in place, so even if the entire website is trashed, will be able to restore it after a new reinstall. Heck, I even bought a external hard drive to back up my pc - backups, backups and backups!
