At the beginning of Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22, Yossarian and the other officers in the hospital were required to censor letters written by the enlisted patients.
"Catch-22 required that each censored letter bear the censoring officer's name."
I thought it might help if all the deletions from Town Square inlcude the unique initials of the censorer.
However, when reading Catch-22 again I was reminded that Yossarian wrote his own name only on those letters he censored that he hadn't read at all, but used a pseudonym on those letters he did read.
As long as the moderators of Town Square actually use their own initials for all deletions they make, I believe it would be helpful for those who are concerned about the moderators behavior.
