My question began after some idiot decided to perform article necromancy on this little gem
That article in particular has caused yet another shitstorm, with people immediately jumping in (without thinking) and and either saying
The subject of that article has been discussed to death and I am tired of people bringing it up. I tried to tell people in that comment section to stop posting so the article can die again but everyone ignored me. Later Captain Troper there commented that deadpooling was not enough for it, it needed to be deleted and I think that guy is right.
Every now and then somebody (possibly trolls) will always bring up that article and start another round of controversy. Is there any way possible we can have that trash completely wiped from the database? If people really still want to discuss the subject of that article, they can read the Pony General thread where that same topic has been discussed a million times
Also this questions applies to other articles too, I’m talking about articles that were clearly made for spam and trolling and serve only to clutter up search results and confuse new users.
What say you admins? Should we allow the deletion of articles to help clean this site up? Obviously such power should be limited to the DB admins. One SQL query on reported articles should suffice.
