O Great Editor with the Mighty Erasor, wilst thou apply same upon this very thread, which now serveth no purpose?

(Nice work. Thanks!)

From past comments, I don't believe Corbet normally erases threads, the
exception being where someone may have posted libelous or other content
subject to a legitimate legal takedown order. Threads such as this, the
argument goes (and I concur), provide historical perspective and
documentation on mistakes that were made, and their eventual fix. Even
after correction, evidence of the correction, and why it was made, should
remain.

This would also be inline with accepted journalistic standards -- Slate,
which I began reading after MS sold it to the WP, for instance, footnotes
corrections, with a pointer from the corrected paragraph to the footnote,
and from there, back to the correction, so the historical correction
thread is maintained, even on something like a web page. Maintaining
such, IMO, is a mark of journalistic integrity, one I, as a subscriber,
would be disappointed in LWN over, should the thread be removed.

I think it would be great if the comment submission page would simply contain an admonition not to use it to report errors. (Those of us who read the comments a lot know that LWN prefers to get those as emails). But that's been mentioned before, and if there's no time to update the web site in that way, I suppose there's no time to add a function to redact comments, or if it already exists, to use it.
