I see what you mean Essorant, but it's his site and if he wants to make sure it isn't offensive to people, its his call, right?
Indeed, it is his site, but in sharing it and having a community and relationship with other people, don't you think others should count and have some say, or at least influence, about how things are or how far something such as editing/deleting comments goes?
Most of these smaller things may not be known by just the general rules. They are unwritten stipulations not written in the rules but sometimes expected "on the spot". For example, how may people know when they sign up that they aren't supposed to say anything that expresses a feeling of disappointment or disturbance about something that shows up at another poetry site, a poetry site that he/she begins talking about here, at which the members will be looking? But even more, how are people to think that that kind of stipulation is not going rather too far?
Saying anything negative about anything may disturb someone and "open" a door of illfeeling. I don't see why all the sudden he takes the point of fixing his "claws" where I felt unwell about something that showed up at a poetry forum shortly after I posted a link to it and put it in the eyes of people here.
