Policy on Deleting Parts of Threads?


#1

I would like to know the site policy regarding the deletion of parts of threads.

Specifically, this one:

Why were all posts after Feb 27th deleted, including those that were simply links?

While there were some unpleasant exchanges, there were also helpful, interesting contributions.

This decision is concerning and looks fairly arbitrary, at least from the outside.

That’s interesting. I read a bit of the back and forth and then lost interest.


#3

Policy?

That answers my question. Thank you.

Edited to add: the “thank you” was sincere and not snark, though I realize that it could be taken as the latter.
