Why my post is deleted?

Hi,
Mr. Bear posted a thread about OS X Lion:
http://www.coderanch.com/t/546188/Mac/OS-Lion-out-cage
And I posted a comment about it is a great day because OS X Lion and ClojureScript are released in the same day.
My post is deleted, may I ask why?
Yes my post isn't related to the original subject but it is not harmful either.
Thanks.

I didn't delete it, but looking at the logs, I believe it was just seen as off-topic -- it's completely unrelated to the post you commented on and to the forum in which the post was made.

Off topic. I allowed the announcement in the Clojure forum (and came "this close" to moving it to BA), but other people's posts are not the place to make unrelated announcements.

Clojure forum is under "Incubator" and I tried bring some Oxygen and keep it alive.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
