Could we get a time stamp added to deletion reasons? They are the only type of comment that isn't time stamped, so all we know is that the deletion occurred sometime after the last comment (or sometime between posting and any comments).

What the heck happened to the front page today? I have the Mefi Deleted Posts GM script, and when I visited the home page today there's about 18 deleted threads in a two and a half hour period, including about 13 in a row. They all go to truly deleted (as opposed to merely masked, which is what I like about this GM script) threads. What the heck where these?

There was a link earlier to the entire bible created in legos. For some reason this was deleted. It was not blasphemous in any way and actually sorta cute. Anyone know why?

I've been noticing recently that some of my posts have been vanishing. I don't assume deliberate deletion on the part of the owner of the system since in many cases they aren't particularly controversial comments.
Most recently, there is a thread about a blind woman nudist who's going to compete in a power lifter contest. I posted one brief post which was a joke, but followed it immediately by a longer one where I stated that I actually respected her a great deal for not letting her handicap keep her from living exactly the life she wants to.
That second post is gone. I have no idea why. I posted it and saw it, but when I went back later and visited, it was missing. I think maybe it may have gotten lost by the database or something.
