What is the policy re accesing previously deleted posts and their deletion justifications? Is there a listing somewhere ? (Could be good for learning by negative example, although certainly defeats the purpose since accesing previously deleted posts means they have not really been deleted.)

They were deleted from the front page... the most important page of the site.

You can still find them on lofi. I think matt had said previously that he didn't want to archive deleted posts somewhere - you'd end up with people vying to get posts deleted to become King of the Trash Heap.

As for why they were deleted-if one is around long enough you know it when you see it.

That's "King of the Shit Pile." A classic worth remembering.

I was wondering about this myself the other day when I saw the Martian Law thread. The second one, that is. I went back looking for the first, wondering if it had been transformed or that I had succumbed to the influence of evil Martian mind bending machines.
