Bruce deleted it.
KarinsDad could have decided the post was worth restoring at some future date.
If then Fernando decided along with KarinsDad that it should be restored, then I
expect it would be (2/3 moderators chose that stance).
In the meantime, we have been deprived of the post for some hours.

So what?  The alternative is to remove the moderator's ability to act, which is
just plain ridiculous.  If I am forced to moderate and I see a post that I think
should be removed, I will remove it on the spot.  Then I will ask the other two
their opinions via email.  If both think I was all wet, then I would restore it.
