Add new comment

i mean, there's nothing wrong with being irritated by the collective's efforts to erase content (the guidelines actually still aren't that clear to me, cuz sometimes they just delete stuff for silly reasons...) but we all have to remember that there is no subscription fee and hardly anyone is reading this stuff

i would personally like it if thecollective said something like this in the "about us" section:

"we delete comments when we think they are malicious, are in bad faith, or we don't like them, if you have a problem with it you can go somewhere else."

just on the merit that people who angrily post aren't necessarily "flame-baiting" or "trolling", it's better for the tourists of this site to actually be able to put all the deletions of comments into perspective. This way i believe preserves the good natured humor and chatting without confusing the commenter...
