Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It so happens that your previous diary was devoid of content but did spawn an interesting comment thread. This one has interesting content but you're doing a good job of derailing any discussion.

If you delete another one of your diaries we might be forced to take away your ability to edit your own stories once posted.

Once a diary is published and spawns a discussion I would consider that it is "owned" by the community who have contributed to that discussion, and not just by the diary author.  I would be quite annoyed if I had spent a lot of time writing a considered comment only to find it had been deleted.

What's more the diary and its comments really disappear. We can't conjure them back up from the bowels of the software.
