This site has serious issues, core issues. Some of them could be solved. I wonder if the community is developed enough to correctly deal with them.
The second issue is that we should have a rule like:
No Regrets ™
Everyone should be the owner of what they said, everyone should be able to regret what was said and remove it, no limits.
That means that:
- Everyone should be able to remove their comments at any time (as it is now).
- Everyone should be able to remove chat posts (what comments become when pushed aside) at any time. Presently it is only allowed after asking a moderator and when he agrees to do it (most of the time they don't).
- Everyone should be able to erase questions and answers. If the content of questions and answers can not be directly erased, make the question/answer an orphan. Any one could later "adopt" the orphaned question/answer and modify it as needed. No-one will be stuck with UN-wanted content.
