In response to a question about Tony Bourdain posting to another website about being stuck in Beruit, I provided a link to Bourdain's post. My post was prompty deleted by the moderators. I realize the objective of not using chowhound to divert traffic to other sites. That makes sense. But the conversation was specifically about Bourdain's message on this other site. It seems petty to delete my post. Have a little more self-confidence that every link to other food sites will not result in a mass exit of traffic from chowhound.
