Mods, any chance of putting a 'deleted' marker in the place of a post; or the text & links; you delete just highlighting that something has gone from there as often the subsequent posts that have referred to it suddenly look nonsensical and out of context. Cheers.

    Maybe but I don't think so.

    As it would be an eit rather than a delete. Or whatever we may do with the post.

    Examples where you feel this would help?

    In that particular example I would have removed the posts after what ever was posted. As it was a single incident rather than a general sort out of spam.
