If a link has been posted and deleted, am I right to assume that reposting the link, even as a sub-link in a post leading on another link about the same thing, is a bad idea?

Having not seen it on MetaFilter, I just wrote a post on the Powersgaming LAN party controversy
, which I thought had brought up some interesting questions about intersectionality, in particular, in the discussions around it. When previewing, it turns out that there was
a post about it
, which contained two links and nothing else, and restless_nomad
had deleted it, on the grounds that it was "Look at these assholes" material - with a dash of LOLTexas, to boot.
So, I'm guessing that what I should do at this point is crumple my post up and bounce it into the waste paper basket. Is that right? If a link is already on MetaFilter, one shouldn't post a double, either even if or possibly especially because the first one was deleted?
