Why was my post about someone having sex with a goat deleted?

Why is a post about someone having sex with a goat not worthy of discussion. The story had everything - intrigue, surpise, excitement, passion, shock, and much more. I know why it was delete - because mat thought it was 'sophmoric' to post something like that - well I didn't post it in a sophmoric manner, I posted it because it is a very interesting story. I have never heard of anything like it in my life. It makes me wonder whether you even bother to read past the headline before cracking the sensorship whip.

"poof" unexpected, explanation demanded

What was the problem with the post about the soccer player giving the finger up? I was really surprised to see that one go "poof." It wasn't high art, but it didn't seem like it was out of line.

Deleted but still on front page

This thread still appears on the front page (after several refreshes), but clicking on the comments gives you the standard "Nothing to see here" thread deletion page.

Was it something that I said?

I thought this post would be more appropriate in MetaTalk, and I mentioned that in comments, twice. Both comments are gone now. Was it something that I said?

The Iraqfilter is clogged

I know that some of us are bored by news about "The War", but isn't this going just a little overboard?

A thread begging for deletion

A thread begging for deletion or to be folded into the previous thread. This is not the Tit-for-Tat Lounge, this is not a debate club, no one is scoring points.

What happened to our questions to Osama?

Okay... what happened to the painfully funny and popular thread from earlier today that had us offering our own questions to Osama?

I don't normally ask... I attribute any missing thread to a well-deserved deletion by Matt. But I can't imagine what about the thread would have warranted a deletion.

Why was my post deleted? (Tom Gutting, City Sun)

Yea I want to know why you guys deleted my post. Some people get away with posting porn sites but I can't post a controversial thread that Tom Gutting wrote in the Houston City Sun. Geez who woulda thought!

Can someone educate me?

I don't think Bas67's recent deleted post linking to the Onion should have been deleted. I think that was good stuff. I was going to post the comment:

They should translate that text into the appropriate language(s), put it on leaflets, and drop it throughout Afganistan, Syria, Lebanon and the West Bank. It might make certain individuals think twice.

Was it really beyond the Pale? Can someone educate me? Or was it the material around the post on that page (which I didn't read)?

Should I filter MetaFilter (asks mathowie)?

This thread sucks. The link doesn't jump down to the story, the subject matter isn't very funny or interesting, it's just stupid. The post is too long, the comments are pretty pointless. I would delete it, but it could create more trouble than it is worth. What should be done about sub-par links? Anything? Take the good with the bad?

Is this the next All Your Base...?

Where did the post for "Is this the next All Your Base...?" go? Why did it leave? Sorry to sound paranoid, but with all the turmoil lately, I'm really curious about the disappearance of this seemingly innocuous post...

Bad day for double posts.

Bad day for double posts. I mean, I know the threads each has slightly different takes but were so many really needed?

Hey so why is Dave Winer's post gone now?

Hey so why is Dave Winer's post gone now? He posted something, then someone commented that it was self-blogging, then it was gone.

thanks for deleting my plain-text password

Thanks Matt, for deleting my previous password-revealing eQuill post.

I think I've refined the problem more though. In the whois microsoft.com thread (too lazy to link) while previewing the comments I have in a blockquote, the formatting is off in much the same way as the ul block I linked to.

Basically, the layout was broken after the blockquoted area, and the text started flush to the left of my window. While it doesn't actually effect the final posting, perhaps there's missing close cell tags in the preview or something?

Impersonation and craziness led to thread deletion

The crazy post from last week about the narcissism site has been removed. Apparently, in the spirited discussion that followed, there were people being impersonated and connected with incriminating events that may or may not have happened.

Since I, as site owner, control the data and have no connection to anyone associated with the sites mentioned in the story, I decided it was better to remove it.
