One of the really annoying "features" of the WikiLeaKs.org system, and of Wikis in general, is the way in which online discussion articles in the Talk pages seem to disappear arbitrarily and without explanation.
If you are a newcomer to such systems, this will present you with a false picture of what is or is not being discussed. Usually, you can delve back through the edit history and find a previous version of what has been deliberately (conspiracy ?) or accidentally (cockup ?) censored or deleted. Because, unlike say Wikipedia, WikiLeaks does allow anonymous editing of the Talk discussion pages (but not yet of the main article pages) it is hard to say if this censorship was deliberate or accidental, or by whom it might have been done.
An example of this is a topic on which this blog has been keeping a watch over, namely the currently expired email@example.com PGP encryption key, which expired on 2nd November 2007 last year.
Presumably, the partially relevant, semi-informed discussion on this Slashdot thread Wikileaks Sidesteps Publishing Public PGP Key inspired a new comment to appear (for a while) on the WikiLeakS.org PGP Keys Talk page.
Here is what we were planning to post as a reply, before the comment disappeared or our web browser cache got confused:
