in thread NodeReaper out of control
I considered the two nodes here for deletion (as I would have the root node, had arunbear not beaten me to it), and they got a bunch of keep votes and have positive noderep as we speak. To be fair, the ratio of delete to keep votes is 2:1, but that still means that quite a few people delight in these posts.
Delight? Not necessarily.
I voted "keep" on all of those nodes (as well as the others that have recently been considered "delete, troll" or "delete, flame") - not because I'm tittilated by shallow controversy and petty flamage, but because I think that's a pretty poor reason to remove content. The only nodes I vote to delete are true, word-for-word duplicates; otherwise, I don't like the idea of removing content from the Monastery, whether we like it or not.
I guess I like to think that not sweeping our trolls and flamers under the carpet is the mature option, rather than making their nodes harder to read.
Found a typo in this node? /msg me
