I disagree with this deletion. I think the subject would have deserved a thread of its own, as it wasn't just another story about the movement, it was an interesting piece on its own right. [more inside]
Deleting a thread on Loudsauce as 'advertising' seems off kilter. I've put off posting about the service because its founder is a friend and I participate heavily in several campaigns - but I would totally rank it as 'best of the Web'
Is that the first time a comment from a deleted thread was sidebarred?
This post, if made as a comment, might stand a good chance of being sidebarred. Was there really no way to save it? [more inside]
How does deletedthread.blogspot.com work? Do the mods update it manually, or is it somehow automated? If the latter, how long does it take for a deleted thread to pop up over there?
Why doesn't the Metafilter search also look through deletedthread to find duplicates?
There was a list in the last few weeks of a bunch of weird places to get christmas gifts. One was the american science supply and the author commented that a similar list was put up last year. Searching metafilter and ask metafilter has proven fruitless. Can someone get me back to the post? thanks.
I'm an avid reader of Puke & Cry's Deleted Thread blog, and it got me wondering: Do any of the admins have stats on the most posts deleted in one day? Or, the most doubles (i.e. the most posts on one topic that were deleted - I'm guessing it must be an obituary post, maybe James Brown)? Or, the longest time span without a deletion? Etc.
Note: The deleted post of mine was supposed to be saved as a draft...I didn't mean to publish it on my own site. I've just found cutting and pasting code is easier than typing it (blogger to mefi). If you note, I've re-drafted it, and as it is a relavent and news-worthy topic, would like to see it reposted.
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. . .
too graphic for metafilter?
I just had a link nixed about the return of filepile.
noticed a link I posted yesterday was removed? why? It would be nice for any moderator or higher up to e mail someone telling why the link was removed
