Please can you leave your comments/explanation available to view? Because you tend to post and then delete shortly after not everyone gets to see what you have said. TIA

I think that would be quite contentious TBH. Sometimes it's a judgement call and to say 'so and so is a git' is defamatory. You would end up with asinine comments like 'we have deleted this thread because we don't like the tone of it/abusive comments/breach of terms of use. etc.

Or leave up the thread with its title and just a message saying 'this thread has been deleted because Justine gets triggerhappy it was in breach of rule X, Y, or Z'

Hi all, we do try and leave posts up for a short while before we delete, but we'll make a note to leave for as long as possible

How about 'this thread has been put on the naughty step for the next 43 minutes' wink

Instead of the message that says "oops we cannot find the thread you are looking for...." Can you change it to - "this thread got stuck up it's own arse/went tits up so we made it go poof" grin
