moderated Re: Delete pending messages when a member unsubs
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Here's a possible reason not to: A moderator who is empowered to see and approve pending messages, but who is not notified of members joining and leaving the group, may see the pending message, be unaware that the member has left, and send it through. It's then a message from a non-member.
But I guess whether or not it's a message from a non-member is similar to debates about "conception." Is the message already a "message" right after it's created (by a then-member) and when it's still just pending, or does it only become a message when it's sent to the group? I would say the latter, so I think deleting (aka aborting) a pending message from someone who is no longer a member makes the most sense.
But those are just my thoughts. I don't really care about this one way or the other.
