Sanj, the most important post in this thread is this one:
We've all had good posts deleted, if we've been around long enough. You just have to divorce yourself from the idea of permanence when you comment on someone else's blog. Who knows if they're having their period, they mistake you for a spammer, or what. It isn't your issue. You leave your post, you hope it stays up, but you have to drop your expectations or you are going to be continually heartbroken.
