(Soft-)Deleting inappropriate posts in heated debates (think: patent battle between Apple and Samsung, AMD vs. Intel, ...) makes some users accuse us of censorship. We therefore currently move such posts to a special subforum such that they can still be viewed but are removed from the original thread. This procedure feels like a hack because it rips threads apart. What do you think about a "Soft-delete, but keep public" option for posts? Such posts would be hidden by default. But the "Thread Status"-pane would contain an additional link "Show x hidden posts" to reveal them.
