The "Controlling an erection while teaching" question was summarily deleted by a moderator. I understand that this question is controversial and that a lot of people have a juvenile response to it, but I think it has value and would advocate for keeping it.

Summary deletion without even a comment, however, is a very strong action that should generally be reserved for trolls and spammers.

Was this positively identified as trolling? If not, I believe that summary deletion without debate is not appropriate, and the community should be allowed to determine this question's fate by the more usual process.


Edit 6/16: Unfortunately, it appears that those who assumed this question was the beginning of another trolling series appear to have been correct: http://academia.stackexchange.com/q/71417/22733https://academia.stackexchange.com/q/71417/22733
