I'm not sure where you are seeing this (i.e. I don't know what page you see as the "front page" of the forum) but when reading the old threads it looks to me like the members names in red are members that are listed as "banned" - I seem to recall somewhere though that not all of these folks were really banned in the usual sense but that their accounts were closed for various reasons (such as by their request).
PS. "closing" their accounts does NOT remove anyone's posts - as far as I can tell from the forum policies the only posts that are ever removed are 1.) spam and 2.) posts removed from a blog at the blog-owner's request.
