CR4 Admin: Deleted Post?

11/15/2010 8:23 AM

Is it possible that CR4 Admin's revision/deletion of posts is now tainted with personal preference?

Is "considered offensive?" a matter of opinion?

How about "This post was deleted because it is related to a deleted post and would otherwise be taken out of context?"

This playground belongs to CR4 admins. They can paint the teeter-totters whatever color they like.

Don't like playing here? There's a great big roomy Internet just across the street. Watch out for cars as you cross, kid.

The daily digest does not contain all the threads; you can see them by selecting the "See all forum threads" button.

Hi szwasta,

It's up to the individual moderator to make the call as to whether material should be removed. "Offensive" posts are usually those that are personal attacks toward other users or that take an obvious off-topic (typically political, religious, or other topic that's not the focus of CR4) track that does not pertain to the original post. You'd be surprised at what users will say to one another when they're frustrated, annoyed, etc.

As far as "This post was deleted because it is related to a deleted post and would otherwise be taken out of context.", that is used when a post was removed (for whatever reason) after others replied to it. Obviously we can't leave the replies because if someone says "you're stupid" or "me too" in response to something that no longer exists - they don't look like they make sense. So we remove their posts as well. That's something that CR4 users have asked us to do and we complied.
