Deleting comments in communities

Deleting comments in communities

Short, concise description of the idea
Have the ability to keep members from deleting comments of others in communities.

Full description of the idea
As a moderator of a fairly active political discussion community, at times I've had to threaten bans and the like for people deleting the comments of others. Can we (or do we) have a setting that makes it impossible for non-admin members to delete someone else's comments?

An ordered list of benefits
  • Will keep people from censoring others, leave that to the mods. ;)
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • If someone trolls a thread then the community would have to wait until an admin addresses the offending comment.
