Post 174868 by WalkerWestridge deleted for the following reason: This is a cool video/story but it's basically a link to "vote for me/donate for me" Maybe would work better as a collection of these than as a SLYT? -- jessamyn

No Rest for the Wicked

Post 174844 by bookman117 deleted for the following reason: Between the new ICE etc thread and much of this being a recent active topic of discussion in the current US politics catchall this is probably better as a comment in one or the other. -- cortex

Dehumanizing Always Starts With Language

Post 174814 by bologna on wry deleted for the following reason: Sorry, but a "both sides do it," "people calling murderers and rapists names are just as bad as people who dehumanize others in order to murder and rape them" mini essay thing isn't really a great post for Mefi. -- taz

Post 174801 by Rock 'em Sock 'em deleted for the following reason: Sorry, no active fundraisers in posts, but this is great news and absolutely worth linking this in the megathread and the WTF thread. -- LobsterMitten

Post 174775 by bookman117 deleted for the following reason: The internet is kinda brimming with critical feelings about this piece and I don't particularly think MeFi is gonna be better for having to go through that same process from scratch here. Let's skip it. -- cortex

Post 174678 by growabrain deleted for the following reason: If there's something here beyond "look at this asshole", it really needs to be framed in a less inflammatory way. -- restless_nomad

Inside Palmer Luckey's Bid to Build a Border Wall

Post 174632 by ostranenie deleted for the following reason: Posting this and then getting into "yeah but illegal immigrants! Gang members!" arguments in the comments is a pretty good argument that you should not have been posting this in the first place. -- cortex

Two Assholes Meet on the Beach

Post 174640 by destrius deleted for the following reason: It's fine to make an FPP for the summit but this isn't great framing for it -- fine to try again or hit up the contact form. It needs to be something that can lead to a conversation other than "these assholes are definitely assholes", or else we may as well just keep it in the megathread. -- LobsterMitten

I see poop jokes coming

Post 174544 by Yellow deleted for the following reason: Heya, posts need to be framed without the "here's my personal opinion/experience with this" stuff; that can go in the comments but not in the post itself. Let us know if you'd like to edit. -- LobsterMitten

Avoid passing judgement till you know their story...

Post 174513 by rbanerjee deleted for the following reason: Heya, it's an interesting bit of context on that whole awful situation, but a post that's framed like this -- as basically personal editorial thoughts on a charged subject -- isn't really a good fit for the front page. -- cortex

Post 174462 by low_horrible_immoral deleted for the following reason: Eh, looking over it further I think there's enough problems here in terms of framing and context that whatever useful conversation there is to have about progressive vs. sexist dynamics isn't really gonna blossom well. -- cortex
