### I guess Hacker News doesn't do meta very well

(which is ironic for something written in a Lisp variant)

Recently, I've grown tired of stories about the TSA on Hacker News.

So I posted and item saying that I was taking a break (the title was "Au revoir Hacker News") with text saying that I was fed up with the TSA stories (and in particular the Ron Paul story in the top slot) and that I was going to take a temporary break. It ended saying I'd see everyone in the New Year once things had blown over.

It was at this link but it was nuked by someone. Not made [dead], simply expunged by a moderator.

Feels a bit uncalled for to me, I'd have been happy for the community to shoot me down.

(Actually it is [dead] so it was the community that killed it off)

I guess I'll be back in the New Year.
