Anytime a question or answer seems to have more than 5 comments, they get axed by the "comment" police. I notice one moderator seems to do this a lot more than they others.
My question is this: What is wrong with the comments? Why are we in a hurry to delete them?
I feel comments can be a great to reference to later. I can understand if it is primarily arguing. But sometimes I like to seek clarification or clarify something as well. I asked a question once where one of the answers was very rude and I could not comment on it because they kept getting blown away.
I'll be honest in my opinion is that they are getting deleted with way too much frequency. The other aspect of this is I just don't find the chat room helpful or interesting. Several times I checked it, it's pretty much empty. Workplace needs some improvements. I know that this is one of the things that I feel could be improved. With it being too controlled by the moderators, it gives a lot less motivation for other users to participate without knowing if their contributions will be deleted. Long story short: Aren't we deleting comments too much?
