Why are you removing points on talk pages?[edit]

Could you explain to me what exactly you have against topics on talk pages? It would be one thing if you made a topic and nobody replied to it, or if you were the only one posting there and later decided to remove it, however I've seen you remove topics with multiple users posting on them, including me, and I'm sure you didn't ask them about it at the time, just as you didn't ask me. Personally I fail to see why you'd want to do this, as it doesn't help anything (if you think it's in the way feel free to collapse it), at best it's entirely dismissive and at worst it's an insult as you're saying to them that what they wrote does not matter. -- Triacom (talk) 06:19, 8 August 2017 (UTC)

To continue on this point, one of the discussion topics that you deleted was a debate between me and you about the moral character of the Space Wolves. I have no idea why you did this, but now you're going through the exact same thing again with an editwar when this could have gone far more constructively just by leaving that topic alone. -- Triacom (talk) 06:22, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
My rule of thumb for deleting talk subjects is that I only remove things in which I was either the initiator or the primary player in the discussion, and only after it's been dead and quiet for a while. I do so mostly because why wouldn't I? When the discussion subject comes up again, people never read the old one, they just want to have the debate again, so why have the old version still cluttering up the chat page?
And just fyi the new argument is me trying to keep any of the space wolves' downsides in the artical at all, when what's his face is trying to turn the "flaws" section into a "they don't actually have flaws" section. Josman (talk) 16:32, 8 August 2017 (UTC)
What if I wanted that discussion to remain there? As soon as somebody else is involved, it's no longer just about you and if the discussion does come up again, which it did, you could have said that this has already been discussed, which has been used before and has shut down arguments and editwars before (unlike what you're claiming here). There's no reason to remove them unless you want to have the same arguments over and over again. -- Triacom (talk) 07:30, 12 August 2017 (UTC)
