I don't mind.
I didn't delete anything.
If he got banned, then it will have been deleted.
We had to get over-zealous and making banned users threads disappear was the best way of clearing about 400,000 spam posts. Have you noticed the site has been quicker since we implemented this change? Thought not.
Weird argument though. I'm not against banning people, I was just sad to see the comments gone.
I dunno who was banned and who did the banning or why. We should probably have some sort of system for them. And maybe a way to bring threads back from the dead...somehow.
don't you find it odd as Mr. Drowned in Sound that you have no idea who was banned or why?
It's called delegation.
with him goes his threads.
That guy was a dweeb.
What other hidden gems will be deleted before I've seen them? :(
couldn't the mods have an option to select the reason for the ban, spambots to be deleted along with threads and posts, with 'offensive' posters keeping their posts/threads (and maybe make their name red or something to show they have been banned).
BUT WHATEVER. HARD WORK ETC.
Like, that morning when I banned the same troll 12 times in about an hour and a half, I kept finding myself thinking *If only I had a load of paperwork to fill in every time I did this*
click one button to ban a spambot or troll (which removes their posts)
click a different button to ban a regular user without removing all their posts and threads
Being a mod is apparently more responsibility than some can bear ;)
