    Default Admin edits

    It would be nice if the admins who edited a post also leave a small line of why it happened, which would be more efficient to correct future postings.

    While this may be desired, it isn't always practicable nor necessary.

    'KH, The responsibility lies with the moderator who is deleting, out of pure courtesy the poster should be told why the post is deleted,'

    that is my practice on the forum i mod, but i was not told to do it that way. it just seemed the right way to go about it.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't contest the editing itself, just thinking it's a common courtesy to put a little EDIT: reason in the edited post.

    I agree with Rasa that this would be courteous, and at least sometimes it should be done, if not always.

    I had a post disappear completely without a trace a few days ago. I had almost forgotten about it until the thread surfaced again. A little courtesy, please.

    Which thread? There over 5,500 threads and almost 70,000 posts on this forum.

    FYI: We always "soft-delete" method here, which means the post disappears to regular members ... They do, however, remain totally visible to the forum staff.

    And yes, even ALL the spam postings remain intact on the server. Nothing is ever totally trashed - ever.

    I think the time has come for me to ask: what the hell is spam?

    Spam, in the context here, is the electronic version of the very same junk mail/unsolicited advertising that people might receive in their home mail boxes.

    I find it remarkable that any internet user (especially one as smart as danae) can not have heard of "spam" in this day and age.

    Unsolicited emails, advertisements, and unwanted junk posts are known on the internet as "spam". The word derives from a low-grade, processed meat-food, invented in America some decades ago, considered "gross" by many, and long the butt of pop culture jokes. (The Monty Python guys used to make fun of Spam, for instance; the musical "Spamalot" is named after it.)

    The fact that the name of this food has now been co-opted to mean "unwanted internet junk" gives you some indication of the prevailing popular opinion of the food; and I've always thought this negative association must have come as a sore blow to the Spam company.

    This particular forum happens to be almost totally spam-free, which I really appreciate. Some other, less well-cared-for forums are so overrun with spam, they're now lost causes, and have been largely abandoned.
