    (ie Google search or similar) it is fair game for the website in my opinion.

    A user here wrote a diary about Gabby Giffords where he used some bad descriptive language. That post got picked up by the national media and though he later deleted it the post continued to be news. Should we have been made to shut up over that diary once it was deleted?

    What if kos wrote a post saying how he wishes Barack Obama or Glenn Greenwald would just shut the fuck up and then deleted it? Would we all pretend that that never happened?

      at hand here: Is it okay to post cached links to deleted/unpublished diaries in unrelated comment threads?

      Would you be so kind as to address that question.

        if you couldn't tell, I apologize if I was vague.

        This place is trumpted as a reality based community and as long as stuff exists in reality is should be accepted here barring CT, spam, etc.

        There is enough bullshit utopian nonreality crap being peeddled here as feasible at this place as it is, we don't need to add to the pitiful fantasy world by denying the existence of words that everyone can see.

        Thanking you in advance.
