Can someone please upgrade the forum software so that users (or at least mods) may delete posts without the site crashing?
Users should be mature enough to post only what they want to post and to stand by it. If they want to issue an apology or a retraction, they can do it without deleting the previous post. We already have unstable people who post stuff and then abuse the edit function to delete it entirely even after people have read it and some damage has been done. To give those people carte blanche to delete whatever they want whenever they want for whatever reason will just enable those people to be even more irresponsible.
Most forums already have edit and delete functions of some sort. I would expect a Christian to be more forgiving of transgressions than secular ones.
Well, if you're going to pull the Christian card, I suppose I could expect Christians not to spend so much time online posting on discussion boards and watching bizarre cartoons and spend more time serving their local communities, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and imprisoned, and in general living according to the gospel.
Obviously neither of us considers discussion boards absolutely incompatible with Christianity, so let's drop that.
We can be forgiving of transgressions without giving people the right to expect that they can commit them anywhere anytime with no consequences. As I said above, besides the limited window for editing, there are already ways to apologise or issue retractions without deleting. Those ways require a little more humility than is required to click "delete". That's also Christian.
