There was a question that just got deleted (~7:20 PM GMT, 2:20 PM EST) regarding a marathon runner and their using a friend's image/name for the charity that they're running for. The question involved the friend, a veteran, committing suicide.
As I was viewing it in the review queue, the website told me that the question had been deleted. That seems a bit abrupt to me. There was one VTC and the question did seem beyond the scope of IPS and probably POB. But why deletion instead of regular putting on-hold then closing?
I mainly ask out of curiosity. My thinking is that there is some rule that we use here on IPS that I just don't know about.
