They can only delete up to 3 threads. So I think it’s ok.  There was such a big uproar to get the right to delete threads, I think this was a fair result.

I’m not a fan either. I think another solution would have just been broadening the reasons a mod would be willing to consider deletion. Really all its been doing is letting people stir the pot then delete.

I just don’t know why people get all bent out of shape by other’s opinions.

You would then like to what? Force everyone to keep everything in public view forever? Even if something changed/was flagrantly rude/or put them in an unintended bad light etc etc etc?

Not sure why this was posted. I don’t like that I only get a 15 minute break…Let’s get on that…

You can’t please everyone. People asked for the ability to delete things, WeddingBee gave it to us. Its each person’s choice what they want to delete or keep, they can only delete 3 threads, I don’t think its that big of a deal.

@Sunflower–girl:  I agree. It’s annoying when a whole thread just disappears into thin air. And most of them are from people who were posting for the first time.

@Sunflower–girl:  lol

I find it a little frustrating when someone deletes their post, especially if I was in the middle of responding and don’t even get to post it!  The policy itself doesn’t bother me though.

@Sunflower–girl:  huh?  I said they probably deleted b/c they gave out too much personal info and people can find things online or they didn’t like the adverse responses …

@Sunflower–girl:  Me either.  It’s so childish.  One was really good info from subsequent posters but the original poster didn’t like that people didn’t like her original idea so she deep sixed the entire thread.  Bogus!

I think that it was very nice of the “powers that bee” at WB to develop and implement the new deletion policy. However, I agree that when someone decides to delete a new, current, popular, and highly active thread, it can be a little frustrating.  I’ve spent a long time carefully crafting responses to some of these threads only to hit “submit” and discover that the OP had deleted the thread.

Yesterday, I had a message indicating that someone had responded to something that I posted on a current thread, and, when I went to see what the bee had written, I received the message that the thread had been deleted.  I am still wondering what the person said — it’s sort of like receiving a letter that is never opened because it blew out of your hand at the mailbox and was carried away by the wind, never to be seen again.

Still, I think it is kind to allow the three deletions for the sake of individuals’ privacy or changes of heart.
