On that note Simon, has audit tracking of pretty much all mod actions. If a user is to be held accountable for their words then a mod is held to a higher account.

As I`ve said does not any longer allow a mod to alter any users posts in any way except to be able to delete the post. This ensures that a users words are definitely their own.

If we go down the track of mods being able to continue to alter a users posts then we need a system where tampering with a users post is tracked and clearly identified. Say I alter your post, I should clearly state what has been altered and why and identify myself so that everything is above board. Of course we are small enough here on chockstone and we have trustworthy enough mods that this has not been an issue. I put it to you though that it may in the future be an issue. If we can alter a users wording then in my laymans view if a defmation action were brought against the user he could use the fact that the mods can alter his wording as a defence. If we remove the ability of the mods to alter words in a post then a user must by definition be that much more accountable for standing by their words. Surely one would think that they would ponder their words before hitting the post button.

We should definitely retain the right to delete though.
