Threads critical of Tech-journalism getting deleted

Now, assuming all the information I have is correct, it looks like The Verge is deleting threads they don't like; I've heard about it before but I haven't seen it personally until today. I came across a thread earlier this morning and left it open in a tab to read later in the afternoon. I copied the text to send in an email before refreshing the page to view new comments but the link ( http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/15/3878800/iphone-5-failing-to-meet-expectations ) now gives a 404. The Verge uploaded their own post about the topic at 11:46 am but this thread was posted well before. Full text appears below. If I am incorrect in my allegations, I do apologize as I do not intend to falsely accuse the staff of poor conduct.

Posted: 01/14/2013 Last Updated: 1 day ago NEW YORK - Apple shares are falling in premarket trading after The Wall Street Journal reported that the company has cut its orders for iPhone 5 components due to weaker-than-expected demand. The newspaper says that two people it did not identify by name told it that Apple's first quarter orders for iPhone 5 screens have dropped to about half of what the company had previously planned to order. It says one of the sources told the newspaper that the Cupertino, Calif., company has also cut orders for components other than screens. The Journal says it was told Apple notified the suppliers of the order cut last month. Apple didn't immediately return an email seeking comment. Apple shares dropped $18.81, or 3.6 percent, to $501.49 in premarket trading Monday. Since this wasnt on the front page of any tech mags... I figured I would post it here.
