FPP Yanked?: Did a FPP get pulled for having no comments?

Link 14801 was about the US win over England in 1950.

I was surfing SpoFi from my Incredible over the weekend and saw a link about the USA's 1-0 win over England in 1950 and made a mental note to check it out when I got home today and now... it's gone?

Did it break, or get taken out behind the SpoFi shed and shot for drawing no comments?

Obama had it yanked to placate the British after the BP kerfuffle.

I'm nobody! Who are you?

Are you nobody, too?

Then there's a pair of us— don't tell!

They'd banish us, you know.


How dreary to be somebody!

How public, like a frog

To tell your name the livelong day

To an admiring bog!

was it a double?

I don't know and the silence from the top of Mount SpoFi makes me suspicious.

Clearly there's a conspiracy at hand here.

We need to get Dan Brown on the case.

What if he was responsible?

Then the movie will have quite the twist at the end.

Does that mean M. Night Shamalamadingdong will be directing it?

"What a tweest!"

Because I post so often, I wrote a script that deletes my front-page posts that get no comments after 18 hours. That link was picked up from MetaFilter.

Convenient cover story.

These aren't the droids you're looking for.

For those of my age it would go: Peter Graves opens laptop he finds concealed in a 'phone booth. Clicks on Sports Filter and sees post from rcade. Reads post as voice-over gives details. Declines to comment, and voice-over says, "This post will self-destruct in 18 hours." Post (and laptop) disappear in a cloud of smoke.

What's a phone booth ?

It's a changing room for Clark Kent.

Or a spaceship for Dr Who.

Or a forgotten movie.

I was going to delete this comment and then I remembered I couldn't.

Forgotten for all the right reasons, Grum...
