It there a way to delete the offender of a thread versus the entire thread? A lot of positive info is lost otherwise.

Hitt2, I agree. I was part of a long and lively and informative thread back in Nov/Dec, the kind of thread I wanted to revisit only to find the whole thread deleted because of one offender (who wasn't really at his nastiest if I remember).

HITT2: We will see how long it takes SS-USA, to delete this whole THREAD.
SS-USA believes that by removing the whole THREAD, a lession will be learn / taught to those of "US" that do post Disparaging Comments.
From an e-mail sent to me; if this trend toward Disparaging Comments are not stopped, SS-USA, may shut down their Web Site.

Community Message Board
Community obligation to post responsibly (only four posting rules)
Community consequences when any members of the community refuse to comply

We will not be isolating and deleting specific posts:

Proven ineffective in stopping subsequent irresponsible posting - Today is the eighth time threads have been publicly noted as removed, along with a reminder of the posting rules;
Disruptive to the message tread flow; and
Censorship is not desirable in a generally unstructured Message Board environment dependent upon members responsible posting individually and collectively

Threads will survive or be deleted based upon the entirety of acceptable content, a policy first announced last September 5th.

Fair is fair.
Unfair is unfair
and no policy reminder is going to determine
what is fundamentally fair to me
or any other right minded human being.
I don't agree that removing a whole thread is fair
to other posters.
I think the one who starts trouble
should not be allowed to post or have his posts
remain on any thread.

The policy (posted date, on deletion) was changed on Nov 6 '08 to the deletion of the whole thread, rather than the individual offender.

I too feel that it's unfair to the group as a whole. Some great info was lost or will be lost in the future.
Why not go back I know it is possible and just as easy.
