@codinghorror Dude, the silent moderation is starting to get out of control. I realize you’re trying to keep this all civil, but deleting anything you don’t agree with and just making it vanish is a bit out of control. Most forums moderate posts to let people know their actions were inappropriate.
Just making them vanish (like you have done multiple times in this thread and many others) leaves the threads looking disjointed and makes people’s reactions to now nonexistent posters non sequitur. This is the exact type of behavior that @unsynchronized was talking about in the opening of this thread.
From many of your comments about discourse as a whole, it was meant to be a partially self moderated community (hense the flagging) not full of heavy handed moderation whenever things stray from what you believe is acceptable.
If stuff like this keeps happening I’m just as inclined as unsync to leave this community.
