When did "you can find this on your own" because a reason to delete an FPP? [more inside]
This post was deleted for the following reason: This is a terrible thing that happened but that doesn't make it a great thread for MetaFilter. [more inside]
Why in hell was my comment deleted? [more inside]
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).
Has the standard for deleting comments changed? It's been clear for a long time that early comments in a thread that tend to poison the thread ("This will end well"; "Getting popcorn," etc.), and comments likely to provoke a fighty derail, will be deleted. But is it now mod policy to delete jokes on the grounds that there are enough jokes already? Are we required to have serious discussions? This is the first time I've seen inoffensive jokes deleted on the blue, and I think it's something worth talking about. [more inside]
This hasn't been voted on yet, so let's wait and see what happens before posting. Respectfully, I think this is a terrible deletion reason. [more inside]
Is my deleted question really unanswerable? [more inside]
Is seems curious to me that this post was deleted for editorialising while this post remained. [more inside]
Maybe it was not written dispassionately enough, but a post I feel is newsworthy was deleted - please weigh in? [more inside]
This thread was deleted with the reason being "let's not". That reason is obtuse and may be difficult for some people to understand. Could we have a clear explanation of why the thread was deleted, please?
I have sent a query to admin, but to help me get a better idea of what the MeFi community (overall) thinks, and the perspective they come from, I'm looking for feedback and discussion about why my FPP was deleted. I'm looking for reasons why, not simple statements of objection. I'm not looking to respond or debate with anyone. Unless a technical question is asked of me, I probably won't respond. I would sincerely just like to read and take or leave what I find. Thank you. [more inside]
mccarty.tim's latest project: Worst Post Ever is a "home version of the deleted post game." Bonus: See the red box of deletion in action! (Via Projects.) [more inside]
If a link has been posted and deleted, am I right to assume that reposting the link, even as a sub-link in a post leading on another link about the same thing, is a bad idea? [more inside]
All of the discourse about his TRULY TRULY TRULY offensive language and questionable behaviour aside.... would it have been better for the community if the mods had refused to publish this question? I wonder if they would have let it through if it had been a racial epithet... [more inside]
Was People of Walmart ever posted here? Did the thread last? [more inside]
Why was this deleted? It seems separate enough from the main Wikileaks saga going on elsewhere, and I can't recall it being discussed all that extensively here previously.
I appear to have just gotten my first comment deletion, out of this thread. Out of concern about aggressive moderation and love for the MetaFilter community, I have several pony requests. [more inside]
When is "needs more context" an appropriate reason for deletion? [more inside]
Criticizing a question is not the same as insulting the asker. It's also not necessarily derailing. [more inside]
I'd probably want to sweep this booger-string of a deleted thread under the rug too if it was my site. But it's sort of sad to lose such a gold star collection of mefi members practicing the non-bigotry they preach, so if anyone lost a comment they're particularly proud of the deleting mod pretty much invited you to re-post it to the open thread here.
Last night this post was deleted at the poster's request. It seems from the context within the post that the poster probably requested deletion because the discussion wasn't going the way he imagined it would. Something about asking to have a post deleted for that reason rubs me the wrong way. [more inside]
Since I was accused of "announcing" a flag reason in the thread, I guess MeTa must be the place to object to pure advertising. [more inside]
I guess sexuality is a banned topic nowadays for me. Sorry Ask MeFi users... I guess someone is being a bit overzealous with their delete rights. This has nothing to do with me figuring out myself. This is a completely different side to the issue of sexuality and me trying to explain the facts to it. http://ask.metafilter.com/162568/Biological-evidence-for-homosexuality
Pony request for my birthday: Can cortex's deletion reasons be collected? Stuff like this is one of my favorite features of the site.
Is there a way to delete a thread, but leave a comment? Maybe that should be a feature for making me laugh, at least. [more inside]
"Metafilter is too good for this low crap." "This really doesn't seem like a good idea." - I'll shoot. Why? [more inside]
I don't want to be the whiny "that guy," but I'm not sure what I did wrong with this question to warrant deletion. [more inside]
Why did this post get deleted for being ranty and then reinstated in its same form?
I just noticed that a few early comments of the "This will surely be deleted" kind have been deleted from threads. I just wanted to say to whatever mod responsible: Good on you. And please continue to exterminate them with extreme prejudice.
What is MeFi's policy when people quit the site and want all their posts + comments deleted? [more inside]
So this question wasn't framed very well, but did it really break the guidelines to the extent that it needed to be deleted? [more inside]
Anonymous pony? One time I asked a question about squicky things, and I asked it in a way that wasn't very useful to the community. Not having it show up, I contacted Jess and she gave me some advice on how to improve it. What if failed anonymous questions were posted and immediately deleted and looked like regular deleted ones with reasons for deletion. This will only work for those with the Firefox script, but at least the asker gets an opportunity to remain anonymous, and other users acquire a sense of what's not going to work.
