There is apparently a misconception that considering nodes is a tool for filtering our monastery's content. This is, for the most part, not true. There is very little reason to consider a node for deletion besides it being obviously intentional flamebait (read: someone is trolling). Mostly, consideration should be used to bring to the attention of the editors a node that is causing a problem with the layout or has an uninformative title. You can refuse to approve offtopic posts and you can downvote them. There's no need to consider for deletion unless they're really miles off topic (like, discussing the latest single from the charts or something).

I post this because I'm concerned that anyone would think of deletion automatically when they see that a node is being considered. That should not be what one associates with consideration.

Makeshifts last the longest.
