Nah, I'm just new at admining, and maybe it's a mis-step on my part. This was literally the first comments I've deleted, and it had nothing to do with the fact that it was aimed at u/ziq (though he does seem to have a little group targeting him). Seemed like an obvious thing to me to remove shitposts made by shared accounts, especially since they can controlled/deleted by anyone. A troll could just come in and edit/delete any of the posts. I guess I always thought of the shared accounts as being a thing until they get taken over by trolls, which I'm expecting at one point.

Next time, I'll just point it out in u/TrollDissection instead of this kind of action if users are feeling like it's controversial.

It's not controversial, don't take shit from this random shared account. Feel free to delete trolls.

If they think removing spam is controversial they can use their regular account to say it. Throwaways don't have voting rights.

agreed, this should probably be discussed in detail somewhere
