I suppose you're asking "you" to the community, but anyways: Yes, it was 
a really bad idea. You should restore the posts of others without them 
having to "opt-out" of having their posts deleted. Yes, it is a good 
example of why it shouldn't be done again. Note that the post from Lars 
you deleted shed lots of light and no heat on the matter.

The subject of moderation has been discussed many times. I believe open 
discussion and free speech is worth dealing with the occasional heated 
discussions. I don't see what changed in this instance to make you 
reverse your policy, except for your personal involvement.
