Not one of life's more pressing issues but I noticed an anomaly the other day when reading through a thread.
It was one where Tinwheeler either deleted the content himself or had it deleted. I can't believe it was the latter as it then reappeared in a quote used by another member and it didn't appear to contravene any guidelines or be offensive. Probably just TW having second thoughts but his decision to have his comment erased was overridden by the text being requoted.
This seems strange and obviously goes against TW's decision so why isn't a "Content Deleted" followed through. I do often see replies to such an action but this is usually because a Moderator has deleted the quote but after several members have seen it and replied to it but not by using the Quote button.
Very strange if you have second thoughts, perhaps because you felt the post may cause some unintended offense.
