Sometimes an inappropriate post is triggering to many users. Even if it is hidden, we see many people unhide it and reply to it anyway. Before we know it we have 10 posts of heated discussion mixed in with the intended discussion, and we have to start deleting about 10 posts to finally get people back on topic. Deletion then further angers them, as they have already formed an opinion and feel it is getting censored.
One of two things which might help here is to add a warning when someone replies to or quotes from a hidden post “You are about to reply to a hidden post, do not engage in discussion about an inappropriate or off-topic remark otherwise your posts will get flagged too.” with the options “Continue” and “Never mind than”
The other option would be to disable the possibility of unhiding a post until it has been edited when a post has been flagged as inappropriate. I will request that in a separate topic.
