For those who can't see deleted posts: I deleted the memes question. However, I didn't act unilaterally; this decision was made by the moderation team.
While it wasn't the best fit for a Meta question, it was locked and doing no harm to the community.
Unfortunately, we disagree with the second half of that sentence.
The question was initially locked by us because we felt it did more harm than good. While it was intended as a go-to place to figure out what on Earth the TNB/PPCG regulars were talking about when someone mentioned yingluck or whatever, it mostly served to keep memes that should have been retired a long time ago on life support. We initially locked the question to prevent the addition of new memes, but that does nothing to help retiring the old ones.
Someone rightfully pointed out that it was more of a FAQ on how to be irritating than a historically significant question, so we decided to delete it. While we may have lost an interesting read, this will hopefully aid in naturally and gradually phasing out some memes that overstayed their welcome.
