    will write a diary asking the community about whether this is acceptable behavior:

    Posting Cashed Links to Deleted Diaries...

    Dear Admin:

    I'd like to call attention to an action taken by a user which I think violates the spirit of good-faith engagement in a blog like Daily Kos.

    First, I wanted to inquire about whether it is advisable for people to get into the habit of getting cashed copies of diaries that have been unpublished or deleted and then post links to those cashed copies in unrelated diaries.

    At first blush, it seems to me that there is malicious intent in doing something like that.

    Imagine if someone writes a diary and the writer later realizes that there is content that may be highly sensitive, and decides to unpublish or delete the diary, just to have someone who's keeping close track of the author's published diaries get a cashed copy of the deleted diary and then starts posting links in unrelated diaries or comment threads?

    As to myself, I can't imagine ever doing something like that to another diarist.

    I just can't get my head around why this particular user would have done this (something that has happened to me before).

    Here's the link to the comment:

    Please advice as to whether this is an acceptable behavior at Daily Kos.

    Thank you.
