in reply to Request for deletion policy

I had a far different deletion experience, a badly done post of mine was deleted. It was my first post as a Monk, a trivial spot of code and brief babble on my part, but I didn't provide any formating and it looked terrible. After I saw it, I quickly got with the program and corrected the errors of my ways in a follow up.

When I checked a day or so later, the original bad post was gone. My initial response was, "There it is again, the unseen hand of goodness saving me from my own stupidity." Also the first line of my follow-up that apologized for my dumbness was gone.

As I thought about it later, I became vexed - what else could be altered elsewhere? I don't know what the best balance between trying to maintain a quality site and letting the discussion flow where ever it may go is. However it a question that needs to be aired, perhaps on a periodic basis.

PS A wrap attribute for the textarea form field would be a wonderful thing.
