Subject: RE: BS: Closed threads & deleted posts.
I need to correct a few misimpressions in a recent prevous post.

(2) Would you like to see for each of these posts a comment by a clone why it was deleted?

Yes why not? That is part of their role if they do not like it someone else will always be prepared to undertake the role properly.

As one of the anonymous clones who helped clean up from the attack, I need to let you know that there were dozens of garbage-posts that needed to be deleted, It took 10 to 20 seconds to delete each one without adding in a comment. Spending an extra 30 or 45 seconds to add in a comment is an onerous task we volunteers are unwilling to deal with in these situations.

(3) Should the comments refresh the threads?

Yes why not but in these cases the thread has already been refreshed and in itself is doing little harm. Posters can either post something new or let the tread fall off the bottom.

Once the spam posts are deleted, the thread is restored as though the posts had never taken place. A thread with a previous post of 2002 returns to the state of needing to set the filters to bring up a 2002 thread once all the recent spam-posts have been deleted,
