A diamond moderator has pissed me off. Again.
This question had very interesting comments which could have drawn new users to the site during this Avengers period: Why doesn't S.H.I.E.L.D. put Hulk on the index and lock him away?
An another user has also showed the concern: Where did all the comments go on this question about the Hulk and SHIELD?
Those comments were enjoyable reads for fans (also, this isn't Stack Overflow that comments can distract users or so). Yet, they were deleted by one of our Diamond Moderators. From bureaucratic point of view, he hasn't done anything wrong because comments aren't meant for those things. Fine (although it's not really fine from the spirit of Sci-Fi).
I just checked some of the top voted questions on top tags and was surprised to see big threads of comments there. Those comments aren't related to question clarification etc too. Where are diamonds now? Why haven't been those comments deleted?
Should we setup a more strict protocols about comments rather than leaving them on the choice of diamonds? Currently, if a diamond is drunk and accidentally deleted all comments, it'd still be considered okay. This is not Okay.
Also, deleting comments on one question and leaving them on another is kind of offense!
SE employees pay more attention here. We should either prevent highly voted comments from deletion (or, at least force Diamonds for that) or clean comments automatically (e.g. auto clean all comments from solved questions after a week).
