I had recently made a post (link here) and came to check the status of it. According to the page, it's been deleted for moderation reasons. Apparently things are deleted when they are 'extremely off topic'. It was a single word request, I don't quite see how that would be extremely off topic; in fact I reviewed the fact and it seems to be entirely on topic. And while I fully admit it is conceivable I have misinterpreted the FAQ, seeing as how it had comments from four 10k+ users, it surprises me that not even a comment was given.
If I could get some insight into what happened, why it was deleted (instead of simply closed), and what can be done differently in the future, that would be greatly appreciated.
