Sandbox posts with several downvotes (such as the one about lolcats) are signs of what the community doesn't like. Should we keep them to remind users about what not to "ask"?

    \$\begingroup\$ I think generally yes, there's no need to delete sandbox posts. If the OP wants to delete them, great for them. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ But those who don't have that privilege are those who most need to see what this community doesn't like \$\endgroup\$
