Default Comment guidelines, cont'd

There's been some grumbling about the arbitrariness of comment-guidelines enforcement, so I want to explain how we're handling this.

When someone reports a post (by clicking on the triangular icon in the upper right corner of any post), an email goes out to several BhTV staffers. We look at the post and, if it violates our guidelines, we delete it.

If we have the time, we look at a few posts surrounding the offending post to see if any of those need to be deleted as well. And once in a while we'll delete an offensive post that we come across in our own forum reading, without waiting for it to be reported. But the basic enforcement model is reactive, to one Reported Post at a time.

This isn't an ideal enforcement mechanism, but it's practical and fair, and the best we can do with our limited resources.

Now, we sometimes get complaints like "You deleted Post X; why didn't you delete Post Y, which was just as bad?" The answer to that should be clear at this point: Post X was reported and Post Y wasn't.

I'm sure you will have your own thoughts about this, which I'm, er, eager to hear.
