is a bad deletion.

I posted this because I found it to be crazy, unexpected, and interesting, not because it's "outrage of the day." A person who has been featured on Metafilter at least twice
(with the most recent thread receiving 274 comments), having been a fairly prominent conservative figure for years, suffering from cancer, suddenly outs himself as a white supremacist - to me, this is Best of the Web in the sense that it's darkly fascinating without just being, say, a single link to something we're all supposed to get worked up about.
If this is "outrage of the day" and deleted as such, why wasn't Ironmouth's thread on "The Talk: Nonblack Version
"? If anything, that post was more "outrageous" than this one.
