Yesterday, a user was temporarily IP address banned because they deleted a couple of their own questions that didn't get upvotes.
Isn't that a little ass-backwards? Shouldn't we be encouraging users to cull their marginal questions and answers themselves, rather than penalizing them for it?
The metric for IP address banning should not take into account deletion of questions and answers that were posted by the OP, and deleted by the OP (except for reposting duplicates).
The system already has metrics for determining whether a question or answer can be deleted with the OP's single vote. If that question or answer is not useful to the community, I don't see why we should stand in the way of letting the OP do their own cleanup.
