What Posts should be edited or Deleted? Moderators

For example, I would say that e.g., if a skater gets failing grades in school, if a skater has had plastic surgery, if a skater has not so reputable family background, then these are issues that can be edited out from goldenskate.
However, if it's to do with the skaters' selection of music, costume, behavior on the ice, coaching situation, interviews s/he has given, so forth, then posters should be allowed to state their opinions.

In that case, the whole post would be deleted, not just edited, and either a warning or infraction issued to the poster, depending on how severe the slander was. GS is a news service, as well as a forum, and that's one reason we have small tolerance for either slander, unsourced rumors, or plagiarism.
