    A thread reads kind of nutty after the original poster has been removed, doesn't it?

    Thanks, Stephen. Nice to see WN takes plagiarism seriously.

    Not really. Not to me, anyway. Selective editing removes context and the responses don't entirely make sense. To me, it would be better to delete the entire thread, particularly a thread like this, as it lacked value to begin with.

    It's different in a thread regarding a query letter in which people gave some valuable advice. Then I can see deleting the offending posts but leaving the rest. But this thread? Easier to kill the whole thing than to have fragments of a (basically dumb) conversation remaining.

    Just my opinion, of course. I remember having this conversation with Victoria as well.

    I don't care what it reads like. I'm just glad he's gone.
