      Description

      To avoid having to keep track of the comments that were deemed invalid or Q&A questions, and coming back later to clean them up (delete them), it would be nice to have a checkbox 'Delete after 3 days' that can be checked when posting a reply to a comment. (using 3 as an example here)

      This should result in a much less messy comments section :)

      Possible implementation:
      After submitting a reply with this checkbox checked, the comment thread that was replied to would be marked as to-be-deleted and a timestamp would be added on which the deletion should take place. A daily cronjob would check this timestamp and delete the comment thread if needed.

        Sounds like a good solution too, plus a good use for the invalidating, which only has a meta-info function at the moment. +1

        How about if we just make a rule; Any comment that is invalidated, gets thrown away after 72 hours regardless.
        Would that work for you?
