What happened to the "Union Influence in Politics" topic?

Even though I initiated it as the debut topic in the Times forums, I'm happy to realize it has been deleted. It died an ugly death long ago, and should have been executed long before it was. I'm curious though... Why? I am unaware of the travesty that occurred that was sufficiently heinous to warrant it's deletion... As compared to the tripe on ALL the other threads that is evident on a daily basis.

Tell us ole whiny pus$ , If you hate unions so very much , why did you go to work at a union shop ? And why cant the tiredbrain troll understand the fact that if republinutz had tried to support unions in their effort for equality that they might enjoy the support of labor ! And I have already explained to you that you can do whatever you want but as part of a union the leadership does whats best for the MAJORITY ! What about that dont you understand ?

89 percent of private and government union employees agree that union workers should have the right to know how their dues money is being spent and believe the Department of Labor should disclose union spending on the Internet to ensure accountability. (The Word Doctors | October 26-28, 2010) THATS A MAJORITY NO?
