> Hmm, maybe not. It might be a can of worms, what exactly to consider exceptionally hurtful, but we could try. Or maybe we could leave the post, but delete the most hurtful sections of it.
*well there has been some instances where its been pretty damn obvious that the post is above and beyond...there's a couple now I'd rather see gone...but I am tired.
As to deleting hurtful sections, its often the whole post that is bad as its anger.
Perhaps deletion of posts could be based on a similiar premise of reporting a post. If more than 2 people wish it pulled(either via report a post or on admin), and it is deemed pretty bad, then perhaps that would work?

> That's a good question. If someone is interested in learning to curb themselves, they could ask for help?
*sigh, when I off on a tangent I am generally not clear enuf to ask for help...
BUT a PBC might help bring me back....kinda a friendly 'watch out! your pushing it', sort of thing...
> > in the case where there has been multiple harmful posts ... it would be nice it the transgression was noticed by you or a dep in the OTHER THREAD(s) affected AS WELL
> It could be beneficial if other posters reached out to them, too, and we'd be open to hearing what was going on, but in our administrative roles I think we need to act on what was posted.
* I think this is a case where the report a post feature could be used as well, in a report in a supportive way....to keep admin 'in the loop' as it were....
Hmmm, this report a post is growing on me!? It COULD be a useful tool for MANY things, not just a thing to rat out others...
