'...Most posters to chockstone are not making their livelihood out of climbing, and don't take climbing or posting all that seriously.
The extreme position of setting all posts in stone is a bit tough for the more casual poster. Being able to delete posts is a big advantage when you see all the garbage you wrote after half a dozen beers at the Blackheath pub last night.
I feel a big question the moderators have to ask themselves is "What audience is chockstone really aiming at?"
If you're aiming at a "serious" website , then set all posts in stone, and you probably should also get rid of Hex and all his clones. But if it's still a bit of fun for the rest of us, then at least give us the option of correcting our sometimes foolish mistakes.
Another option would be to have parts of the chat site open to corrections, and parts set in stone.
I don't agree with setting posts in stone. I think we have to remember this is just a climbing website, we're not talking about world health here!...'

>Is setting in stone after 24hours acceptable Chris? That would give you time to sober up, >get rid of the hangover and delete whatever rubbish you have posted!
