Default When moderating, don't edit the post, delete it.

I know some of you like to edit a post when a user did something against the rules, and write something "funny". For example, a user posted spam for WoW, or when a user did anything else that's not tolerated.

Then, I log on the forum, and see: "You have a new post". I then click to read it, only to see that's it's a stupid post, or an edited one.

Seriously, just delete the post made by users that did something against the rules.

You know, I don't think it's only up to you to decide. Also, the post was not directed only at you.

Personally, I like to edit because then I can give a reason...

(ie "Stop spamming." or "Post patches for your hacks, not ROM files").

It really depends on the situation.

For that reason, I don't mind. It's a good reason to edit the post (ex: removal of a link that points to illegal softwares). However, when it's to say things like "rape my face", "I am confused !", or any other things like that, it's annoying for the reasons I've posted earlier.

Well yes, that's a little different IMHO.

The mod edits that Cornellius is referring to are rather juvenile. They can be funny at times, but it doesn't do much to instill faith in the mods.

Additionally, persons who sincerely wish to have their faces raped will experience difficulty getting their requests fulfilled.

Guys, soft delete the posts, do not participate in the original user's idiocy.

Yes please, spam gets on my nerves.
Just do soft delete the message, please. That way, us normal users won't see them.
