I've read through the thread and here's the summary.. when we delete comments like that we're accused of censorship and forcing a "nanny state" environment. If we leave them, we're accused of not doing our job properly.
There are a lot of members using this site, we can't satisfy everyone all of the time.

Some of the people complaining in that thread are the ones that push the boundaries on a regular basis with their comments and images, perhaps if they're so offended by other people making controversial statements they should restrict the kind of thing they post in future so as not to upset other members.

Incidentally the mod team edited the original comment because it was offending so many users. That doesn't affect the fact that other members had already quoted the message and continued their complaints re lack of action.

Exactly.. we're not going to go through editing every individual post when those complaining are the ones that have quoted it. If they're so distressed, they just need to edit their posts. Their posts are the only reference to the original content.

Personally I find it more offensive that a bit of random banter yesterday was deleted for no apparent reason than some PRUNE coming out with a silly comment.

**** off? Don't be ridiculous. How can a mod stating that someone with such an inappropriate username isn't really in a position to comment on inappropriate behaviour be classed as ****ing off?

Well if the comment was right or wrong is not an issue for me nor the moderating decision. For me it's that we can talk about theses issues and make a thread for people to put their point across. Too many forums have too strict moderation or almost none at all. This is what keeps this site interesting because decisions in life aren't always just yes or no.
