A plea to the Mods: stop deleting entire threads over isolated issues! Single-Channel Preamps

A plea to the Mods: stop deleting entire threads over isolated issues!

We've all seen it: a useful thread gets trashed by one or two irrational members. Instead of deleting the irrational posts, a Mod deletes the entire thread.

PLEASE STOP!

Obviously, it removes useful posts from useful people, but worse than that it's creating a tool for our more childish members who want to pull the plug on a topic they can't handle. They trash the thread with ridiculous content knowing that, eventually, one of the Mods will just delete the whole thing. Sometimes they themselves even report the thread.

I see it about once a week. It's pissing off a lot of people, not just me.

I think I speak for the whole community when thanking you for the unrewarded efforts involved in moderating, but with only slightly more effort you can hand-pick the correct posts to delete and keep that which doesn't deserve deletion.

Never fear, there are many that support truth over fiction. The EW shill thread is a matter of historical importance, and will never be lost.

Don't be too sure. There's an endless number of deleted threads about which we might have said the same thing.
