On Self-Deletion Of Articles On PersonaPaper
Okay, I found out for myself, when I was finding my way around on PP, new as I was, that there are two buttons to click on the upper left page of the finished article: One for delete, the other for edit.
I find those 2 buttons cool, as surely as rats within a maze would discover via operant conditioning, i.e, something that is instrumental in doing the same thing over and over again as long as they get rewarded.
When I registered for PaperPersona, I was made to write a few words about myself as part of the application process. Well, for most applicants, if that's the right word for signing up, it was like the interviewer asking you to tell something about yourself, right?
I mean that is a personal, nay confidential matter, like between a doctor and his patient, or a lawyer and his client.
I was taken aback then when I saw that "Introduction" morphed into a first article. That's fine with me, though, but the manner it was "published" was without my consent. It was supposed to be a matter between the administrator(s) of the site and myself.
Forgive me if I am/was wrong but the moment I found the "delete" button, I didn't hesitate to delete that "maiden," not to mention "unauthorized" introduction. It was like a resume laid bare to the public.
After all, writers have a right to privacy and anonymity, including behind the avatar.
But no worries. Just bringing the matter up.
