Deleting the standard welcome message after a time

Moderator manufactures reason to delete post, and no action taken when reported: What to do?

However, that was false. None of the tags specified "Trinitarian." Perhaps realizing that this was so, and attempting to cover his/her tracks, the moderator then edited the question so as to ...

Always be ready to give a reason for your hope (with citations)

I can see the difficulty in trying to deal with answer posts that have been flagged, given the lack of moderators who actively monitor what’s going on. However, would it be helpful if participators ...

A house without its foundation will surely fall. Your long service is appreciated. Your touch will be missed. As we say around here: vaya con Dios, amigo.

Moderator deleting upvoted answer because it misses (quote) "superfluous information"

Inappropriate deletion of answer

Did you ever flag D.J.'s answer as not an answer? Moderators don't necessarily go out of their way to delete answers. I think this is a question about Christian culture, not necessarily theology. Or ...

Why was my answer about Jesus and the early church just deleted?

What can I do with all this reputation?

Around Christmas, we do "Advent Bounties" as a way of distributing our vague Internet points out of joy for the Incarnation. So if you've got some extra saved up, you can spread it around then too!
