Protein Wisdom Alters Commenters’ Words to Mock Them
Protein Wisdom is apparently powered by WordPress. As I comment in the thread at Patterico, good software design would not allow even the site ops to alter someone's words without leaving a visible trace for others to see:
Properly designed software would not encourage this, or at least, would acknowledge it has happened by "This comment was edited by the site proprietor. To see the original comment, click here" and provide a link to the original comment.
I'm not saying you should not allow the proprietor to alter it at all, just that a trace should be left behind which others can use to call attention to if one should abuse the power to deal with things other than spam and/or inherently offensive/abusive entries.
This is very, *very* bad design on WordPress's part.
Yet another reason to NOT use WordPress, or to trust blogs which do so.
