For reference, I just deleted about 35 this morning. 20 from a
spammer (I guess the idiot's been blocked now) and 15 from a thread
where the poster got offended if they were hosted here at wp.com or
elsewhere and refused to answer the question.
There are times when I'll edit a post instead of delete. It's usually
because we've had a detail description of a plugin that's not
available to wp.com users. I do that so not to confuse folks. That
happens about once a week. I mark the reason when I do it.

Was wondering about that. Had found a thread once where hte first
five or so posts we're not labeled. Was rather strange. Thank you
for the response.
