Reddit's Greatest Hits?

Post 151726 by Another Fine Product From The Nonsense Factory deleted for the following reason: Some problems here: the personal framing is a bit off for Mefi, and "because there's been some bad press, I went looking for something good from Reddit" isn't really a great basis for a post. If you'd like to focus on one of the stories and frame a post based on the site/info itself rather than Reddit's recent trouble, that would be better. Please contact us if you have questions. -- taz

Post 151693 by The Wanderer deleted for the following reason: This is a bit too heavily framed around your own thoughts and opinions. It's often better to avoid that and let the links speak for themselves. Some relevant FAQ entries here. -- goodnewsfortheinsane

Here is something fun to do in London on August 8-9!

Post 151651 by indianbadger1 deleted for the following reason: Heya, I love musical theater based on corpse-loving mallards as much as the next guy, but as just a show announcement this is too thin for a post. Would be totally fine to make a post once there's video footage of the Wagnerian stuffed stiff duck ditties. -- cortex

I want to have a complete story so I can say, "Here is your best spin."

Post 151649 by aka burlap deleted for the following reason: Ugh, I get the sorta man-bites-dog nature of the profile but as a starting point for a discussion of a really difficult topic this is in practice likely to function less as a discussion of the profile itself than as yet another argument about the underlying and much more complicated question of sexual assault adjudication and educational opportunities with the profile itself as a rocky touchstone. -- cortex

Planned Parenthood confirms hack attempt

Post 151619 by emjaybee deleted for the following reason: This is a bad thing that happened, but dudez trolling Planned Parenthood, or Planned Parenthood supporters, seems like not a great start for a conversation that's anything but grar. -- LobsterMitten

Trump bumps rump- Moguls, (alleged) marital rape, menace to reporters

Native American Activist Found Dead in Jail Cell After Traffic Arrest

Post 151568 by yueliang deleted for the following reason: This is horrible, but a single link to one short news piece and another link to a general search of a newspaper for a different person who also died in police custody isn't a great post. Maybe try this again when there's more info? Let us know if you have questions. -- taz

Guess which country is emerging as Earth's new company store

Post 151543 by despues deleted for the following reason: Sorry, but this needs to be more neutrally framed as a link or links to something interesting on the web, and not so much "here are my personal thoughts." Please contact us if you have questions. -- taz

How One Tweet Can Ruin Your Life

Post 151471 by numberstation deleted for the following reason: It's not quite the same link but we had this thread not too long ago that seems to cover much of the same ground, and I feel like in some ways this would be a redo of that discussion. Sorry to be a spoilsport; this could maybe work as part of a slightly broader round-up? -- goodnewsfortheinsane
