Can't we just let the Up Vs. Down votes decide the issues discussed here instead of using the black marker?
If it's stupid, let it be stupid...and down voted - which is a form of moderation. Members here at the DP self moderate the discussions with a plus or a minus vote.
I think the big reason why so many people are agitated is because certain posts that were stricken from the official DP record actually had a lot of positive feedback.
"Can't we all just get along?"
If somebody has something stupid to say, let them say it. Because a year or two from now that person could very well be seen as being not so stupid after all.
We are all way too quick to judge one another.
Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
