If I'm wrong on that, apologies, as such a tag would go a long way toward mitigating that particular concern.
And I agree with Dopey's posts - it would be great if there were something to show when a post was deleted, even if it's an in-line "post deleted by mod" type of thing.
I support this initiative wholeheartedly.
My understanding too was that the new system doesn't indicate when a mod has edited, but I could be wrong. Imo, it's a good idea to have a line saying "post deleted by mod" too.
Earlier someone wrote that he thought mods report all action here. I certainly don't do that. I only respond to questions here. But like mordecai, if I edit or delete posts by someone else, I pm the person (except spammers or double-posts, of course). That happens maybe once every other week. Usually I don't edit rude posts myself but just pm the person and ask that him/her to edit the post. That happens very rarely, like once a month and usually it's been reported by several other members. I think that's all standard policy.

Not that I can recall. Although, once or twice, I've changed "alot" to "a lot." There's no such word as "alot," people!
While I'm ranting, American English usually puts the comma and period within the quotation marks, as above.
Of course, I'm sure I make mistakes at times, and I would love to be corrected. I don't want to be a bad example to the chidrenz.
