Delete in Haste, Repent at Leisure

Great post from Martin Belam about transparency, criticism, publishing and the web:

> *If you are going to make changes to your site in response to criticism, be transparent about it. ‘Stealth edits’ will only lead to people posting screen shots of how the page used to appear taken from the Google Cache, and accusations that you are trying to wriggle out of the situation.*
This has come up twice for me in the last week – understanding the technical and social consequences of deleting something from the web is still too rare. One to read, digest and bookmark for future reference.
