Just for the record, here's the changelog post that originally came out describing the feature in case anyone would like to review the motivation and thoughts on the feature at the time of release.

Thanks for sharing, I'll take a look at it!

after all, we're humans and so may have slightly different interpretations of how a comment should be handled based on the CoC.

Yes, and well, because of this things often go sideways, haha.

I could see us potentially opening up a section for admin to review hidden comments.

I admit that it adds a significant overhead, but through this discussion, I hope anyone can freely contribute possible solutions and middle-ground approaches to improve the platform.

I knew that you guys thought long and hard about this. I know that perhaps not everyone is fully satisfied with the current way of doing things but it can surely be addressed. Yes, I don't want authors to feel unsafe but I can't help but sympathize with those whose comments have been hidden or deleted in an unwarranted way.

Anyhow, I hope that this discussion brings in some great suggestions that can be helpful to the DEV/Forem team!

Thanks for dropping in!
