I voted to close it as Off Topic (purely because of the user's status) and edited an exclamation mark into the question text to advertise my action/reason to others (I've done this many times before).
A mod reversed my edit and asked me not to do this again (the question has in fact been closed).
I'm prepared to abide by any decisions made by mods, but I'd like to know whether it's site policy that I shouldn't have edited in my warning marker - and if so, why?
I'd also like to know how it comes about that currently this user only seems to have asked a total of 22 questions, when I know perfectly well that he's plagued the site with hundreds of questions - over many months, if not years.
The implication is that his questions are being deleted. Is this site policy? If so, why bother to reverse my "warning" edits? If not, why are the deletions being allowed/encouraged by mods?
