On deleting node contents
I also laughed quite a bit about the huge list of responses to appearently empty nodes. But as 285414 for instance is a root node, the author wouldn't even have the possibility to withdraw its content, unless I am somehow mistaken. Wonder what happened to it then.
Additional / alternative suggestion: Just make this a consideration issue - just make it possible to consider adding the original contents of a node to it - this would still preserve its new content.
Just a thought from a little monk, though.
