Why was the WWV post deleted? Not clever enough? Isn't the ";)" enough to denote it's some type of joke?

It was a hoax that people didn't find all that amusing in the first place.

you can still read the page @homer, but you have to type the url like so: http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/27031

matt puts the reason for deletion on the page nowadays.

cheer up, and welcome to the big leagues. few are the regularly posting members who can say they've never had one nuked by matt!

That's why I can never go to Reno ever again.

Mathowie once killed a man with a guitar string
He's been seen at the table with kings
Well he once saved a baby from drowning
There are those who say beneath his coat there are wings...
One look in his eye
Everyone denies
Ever having met him
Ever having met him

But you can sing the blues.

Oh. Wait. Memphis, not Reno...

Because he steals his promise

Ahem. That's:

"because his steel is his promise."

Watch out, squirrel, there may be a guitar string in your future.

I heard he once killed a thread just to watch it die.
