How about this scenario:

A troll posts a pretty bad question, and some monks get suckered into answering. Well, a more astute monk sends it to Nodes To Consider and it gets marked for deletion. The response to the node is still valid, so it shouldn't be removed, but the node makes no sense without the original post. Therefore that reply should have the original node text inlined, properly credited as not being a part of the original node, and made into a top level node. With one caveat: The author of that node, being duly suckered by a troll, has the option to delete the node. Furthermore, I don't think any replies should be allowed to a node that was orphaned. The original node was considered bad enough, and so that thread should be allowed to die.

Okay, a bit extreme, but that's just a suggestion. And vroom is "trolling" for suggestions, right?
