I believe, we (ATS community) should be allowed an explanation of why a thread was deleted. I am not saying that we should necessarily be able to discuss the reason behind the deletion as a democratic sub-populace, but at least be given a reason why a thread that we see added via RSS was, suddenly and without reason, made unavailable to our piddly little consciousnesses.

This can create a sticky wicket situation, IMO. Sometimes members will ask staff to delete threads... Maybe they became emotional and over-shared, or posted drunk and then sobered...
it's always easier for me to want something than to get it, but I do agree that having a page which pops up for trashed threads which would display an explanation mods can fill in would be a nice thing to have. In general, the less guessing members have to do, the better.
