I think since you were looking out for vroom and other PM here, that censoring such a node was not a bad choice. If vroom thinks differently, he can always repost it. Hopefully he'll comment on this thread and let us all know his thoughts on this matter as well as other nodes that are / will be similar. In these cases, it can be a difficult choice. What if a PM here created code that does somehow cross a certain boundry - would be it censored? Or commented on how well done it is? I'm not sure what the right answer would be. I think if it was at least a member of this site, one could talk to that particular person and discuss either editing the node to the comfortability of vroom or not edit it at all (depending on the outcome of the discussion). I think the editors were created mainly to fix nodes that do not have the correct tags or to edit them in a responsible fashion, but not to change particularly the content (please correct me if I'm wrong). I think if the content shouldn't be here.. well.. the good ol' Nodereaper will eventually take care of it. I DO think that the PM here should be responsible for their posts here at the Monastery. If a PM posts something inappropriate, the editors or vroom or whoever sees the post has the right to discuss it with the PM who posted it. Hopefully a positive outcome will come out of the discussion (possibly in the meantime, the post may be edited to the comfortability of vroom). It's a thin line with editing... but it's definately appropriate if there may be a problem with legality issues...I don't think any post is worth causing vroom legal issues.

Update: good point turnstep

    I think corion would have done so in this case, except for the fact that it was posted by the mysterious Anonymous Monk. Most of the more controversial posts will probably come from Anonymous Monks, especially if the poster knows it is controversial and does not want it traced back to him/her.
