I have been going through some of the older posts on the site and finding lots of what I perceive as obsolete comments: chats about edits which have long been committed, "thanks", "welcome to the site", "great question", etc. and flagging them as such. Of course, I avoid any comments that have further information or follow up questions.
After chatting with two of the moderators who had opposing viewpoints on the subject, I'd like to see how this would be received by the community. Obviously, the final say for the deletion of comments comes from our fearless moderator corps (the only exception is comments that are flagged by 2 users as offensive are autodeleted).
So, if you are in favor or opposed, please express that opinion by using one of the preset answers below, or if you have another opinion to offer, please add your own answer.
