Is it just me, or does this no longer exist?

Is it just me, or does the thread that contained the link to the British doc about White Phosphorous and MK-77 being used in Iraq no longer exist?

os flame war

What's the deal with the title of this post? It doesn't look like it has anything to do with the thread. Is it an odd attempt at self-promotion of some sort?

Self-Link Deletion

Can you get a post deleted because it is already posted on your own site? even though the post has good info and had a conversation started? post in question http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/45943

Request: official deleted threads index on the site

Deleted threads should have their own place on this site somewhere. Not only could they be accessible for reference, but many are funny as hell.

Yes or No?

My lively Burning Man post was deleted?!

My burning man post was deleted because it was "an excuse to talk"? Admittedly, it wasn't the most stellar post, but a lively discussion ensued, and gee, I thought that's why we came here. Besides, any post that allows mefites to express their everlast hatred for "hippies" has got to be doing the community some good, no?

Deleted relevant thread questions

My FPP was deleted today. Which, relevant to an ongoing thread (that I had not seen prior to posting) brings up interesting (or not?) questions about prohibited speech and its implications/consequences. . .

I don't understand this AskMe question

I don't understand. But then again, this is some pretty heady stuff and I'm a simple man. [I wanted to flag it but apparently you can't flag AskMe posts]

If a comment is deleted, is the user notified?

If a comment is deleted, is the user notified? I commented in the roach question, and now it's gone. Is it because I used a bad word?

Where'd that comment go?

I could have sworn that somebody posted a link as a response to my question. Now that I have time to actually check it out, though, the link is gone. What gives? Bug? Gratuitous moderation? Anyone know what the link was?

Comment Deletion

I am not a fan of "why did you delete my comment"? posts, but, er, feel compelled to ask... Why delete the three comments in the NYT thread which linked to other online papers? Maybe they should have been more verbose, but I think the point they were making is clear - there's a whole variety of fish in that online paper sea, why get so het up about the NYT?

That deleted thread had an interesting Q&A about #mefi

Look, that deleted thread had an interesting Q&A about #mefi where I learned quite a bit. You'll certainly delete this one, but did you even read it before you bombed it?

Bad job. Totally unreasonable.

Link suddenly disappeared

I am baffled by the sudden disappearance of a link to 63days.com - I am unable to find it by searching MeFi either. I was not the original poster, but found the link fascinating and am confused about its removal. Anyone know about this?

Is this what MetaFilter is for?

I recently had an Ask MetaFilter comment deleted. The topic was Asperger syndrome, and why so many brilliant people had it. My comment went something like this:

Call it what you want.
Difficulty with mundane, linear tasks promotes lateral, creative thinking.
Poor social skills promote self-reliance.
Weakness becomes strength.


I don't agree with the deletion, but I can live with it.
The standard explanation for FPP deletion is: "This is not what MetaFilter is for."

But now you have an FPP with about sixty comments that debates how many five-year-olds you can maim or kill. Weapons are being mentioned. I understand this is supposed to be funny. I think this is not only not funny, but in extremely bad taste. Substitute "women" for "five-year-olds", and how long would this FPP last? Is this what MetaFilter is for? Matt?

What happened to my MeFi question?

Earlier today I posted a question about MeFi (how to turn off background color) in the main Ask MeFi area, which appeared for a few minutes then vanished. Did it likely get moved somewhere else, or just censored? for being in the wrong place? for expressing (in mild terms) dislike of a Mefi feature (I can't see text on colored background). Or did it just vanish into the ether?

Lost & Found

I'm confused by this Ask Mefi question and just as confused by the "best" answers. Although a question is asked in the first sentence, the focus of the post is to use Ask Mefi as some sort of artsy fartsy lost and found.

Comment count does not match actual comments

3067 != 3202 ; 443 != 471 ; 426 != 432 ; but 11 == 11. An old user thing? Or a massive cover-up? Follow the money!

reason for deletion?

I don't think deleting Metatalk threads asking to clarify the deletions of Ask Metafilter threads is good for the community. [+]

I am TOO logged in. The thread has been taken out.

When viewing a deleted thread (While logged in) I see a bit at the bottom that says "You are not currently logged in. Log in or create a new account."

I can confrim that this is happening in every thread that is currently missing off of the front page.

Firefox 1.0, WinXP, &c.

Tags for deleted double posts

Tag problem? Searching for the Jeff Gannon thread to post this juicy update, I found this page, which says there's a tag but doesn't show it. I think it may be a tag for a deleted double post?

Actually I don't think this was his own website...

I don't think the site in this deleted thread belongs to the poster. The names don't match up, and neither do the writing styles. He just improperly quoted the phrase "The Goleta Air & Space Museum is just my web site." While not formatted very well, I think the link holds up to scrutiny.

Where did my comment go?

Disappearing comment in this thread: I posted a perfectly normal comment after 40 Watt's first comment, and I know that I did indeed remember to hit "post" because, well, I actually saw the comment posted on the screen. But just now, going back to the thread, my comment is gone. Are gremlins afoot? Because certainly my "hey, thanks for the reminder, I'm going to get this for my nephew" couldn't be considered worthy of deletion...?

Deleted comment notification?

Would it be possible, when comments are deleted, to replace them with a [comment deleted due to offensiveness] rather than delete it altogether, and have 100 people all scratching their heads going, "huh?" at the apparently non-sequitorous responses?

(Phrasing partially stolen from wackybrit)

(Caveat: This is not me bitching. Just a question. If it's a bad idea, just let me know.)

Crossword puzzle post isn't quite right.

I'm guessing this should be moved here, since MetaFilter is about links (and no, the 1998 report of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament isn't enough). Yeah?

Finding Deleted FPPs

Pony: We've heard it before (a bookmarklet was even developed for it), and the devout scour mefi.lofi for them... but in this age of all the new MeFi citizenry, I think it would be helpful to get an easily accessible repository for deleted FPPs up and running for the benefit new posters to dig through and discover why some posts must die. How easy, how hard, or how pointless?
