As a self-described “tradeline deletion” person, I’ll admit up front that I’m an absolute asshole. I’m not here to write or talk about my experiences, I’m here to point out how much I hate this site.
So here’s a video about the experience of the ‘tradeline deletion’ process we had.
Tradeline deletion is a fun, goofy, and silly process that is often the result of some serious thought on the part of the moderators. When it works, it’s a wonderful example of the power of the internet. We put up the tradelines so people can find the best places to hang out, go to shows, shop, etc. And if you’re not happy with the results, you can always change it.
The process of tradeline deletion can be incredibly frustrating. Once the moderator starts the discussion regarding changes to the tradelines, they are usually very careful to put it in a very neutral way. And the best part is that once they have their thoughts on the line, they can simply delete it. A few of the moderators I spoke with said that they had never been the one to delete a tradeline.
The most common scenario is that a moderator has edited a tradeline in the past, then that moderator decides to delete it. The moderator is likely to delete it either because they feel it’s not useful or because they think it’s not the right thing to do. Most moderators I spoke with said that they deleted a tradeline because it was not the right thing to do, or it was a lot of work to get rid of it.
While I have no doubt that most tradelines are useful, it’s really important to ask yourself if the “right thing to do” is actually the right thing. I can’t say that I’ve ever deleted a tradeline because I thought it was the “right thing to do,” but I think that’s because I simply don’t believe in deleting anything that doesn’t serve its purpose.
The thing about tradelines is that they are not limited to just being unimportant. Many times people will want to delete a tradeline because they feel the need to remove it from their blog. For example, if you have a list of questions you are hoping to get answered, and you delete the question that is on the list, then you are just deleting an unnecessary link.
Tradelines are not just unimportant links. They are links that are created to serve a purpose. In our case, we wanted to delete the tradeline about our blog. But that means that we are deleting an entire blog post that was created to serve a purpose.
This is actually a good discussion point, but it doesn’t apply to us. The reason we delete tradelines is because we have people that are coming to us for help with a problem, and they need to be able to make a connection with one of our own. And if they want to get through their troubles, they will probably just come to us. I can’t speak to other blog posts, but I’ve found this to be true for a lot of blogs.
Tradelines are those blog posts that are created in the interest of one person or organization (or for a group of people) and then shared to all of us. They are used in social networks like LinkedIn and Facebook.
