I can't say I read it myself (I was not the one who deleted it), but we know from experience what kinds of posts will lead to arguments, and yours was absolutely in that category, based on the title alone.

I deleted it, for precisely the reason Ernest mentioned. I didn't read it in full, but with that title in ALL CAPS I didn't see it going anywhere good. What's more, even from a cursory look it seemed clear that the person posting it was not the person who wrote it, yet there was no attribution - another no-no.

We do, so any interested moderators can form their own opinions even after something is deleted.

If you're talking about the contents of that article: its seems to originate from a newspaper - maybe the paper has online forums where this discussion can be had.

By the way the question was only on first two lines,there was no urge to read it full.
i would love to receive your private message over that issues if you can.

Calling moderators names, yelling at them and insulting them is really not a good thing to do on a privately owned site. And clearly you were NOT aware of the rules. One of them is that any moderator can delete any post that he or she feels should be deleted.

Paul, the owner of this site, has said many times that if you don't like how this site is run, you are free to go elsewhere or even create your own site.

I have a respect for all official members of this site who have helped me and other naive people many times.So no question of insulting them.
I can't even dream to do that.
If you saw my earlier(deleted one) and present post according to that i didn't call anyone name or insult any body.

I wasn't aware of this fact that it depends upon mood of anyone.

No not mood. If any of the moderators believe that a post is not nice or its not of any good, they delete it. And as humans we can be wrong. Thats why we have a place where all deleted posts go so that if staff volunteers other than the one who deleted the post think the post is fine, it can be restored...

And in this case, I don't think that will happen... that "article" is just full of flame bait.
