The ABC stealthily removes article

The ABC has, without any explanation whatsoever, consigned to oblivion Alene Composta's The Drum Unleashed contribution titled "The 'moosing' of Kristina K". The cached article, while it lasts, is here.

The ABC should not remove or alter articles without explaining exactly what has been done and why. To do otherwise is underhanded and indicates the ABC has something to hide.

Update Jonathan Green, editor of The Drum, tweets:
What do senior NSW Liberals mean when they refer to premier Keneally as 'the moose'? Look it up. http://bit.ly/ezagn8 #IWD
Green follows-up here but makes no mention of the article's removal. This is rather odd in that as The Drum's editor he must have approved the ditching of Composta's moose nonsense. How embarrassment, as they say.

Nicholls really digs to make his case - digs too hard and far too deep, if you ask me

What is far more plausible, apparently, is go to Urban Dictionary, which has 103 definitions of Moose, take the 8th one, which is on page 2, and run with that.
