You created an article with the following content:

As of September 12, 2007, we're getting an error just like the one described at ("Dreamhost refuses Ajax/XHR requests with no data") as well:
[Wed Sep 12 13:22:18 2007] [error] [client] mod_security: Access denied with code 503. 
Pattern match "^$" at HEADER("Content-Length") [severity "EMERGENCY"] [hostname ""] ...
Apparently the workaround is to be sure not to send any blank data calls.

The article has been deleted because it doesn't adhere to the wiki's stated policies and guidelines. Please consider these before creating any new pages. -- Scjessey 14:01, 12 September 2007 (PDT)

Blowing away pages created in good faith by new users is not the way to build community. What policy did I violate? Jclerner 14:27, 12 September 2007 (PDT)
The most obvious problem was the title "Dreamhost refuses Ajax requests with no data", which is cumbersome and overly specific. Please see the content and style section for specifics. New users are asked to familiarize themselves with the policies and guidelines on the Main Page. I apologize for seeming to be rather terse, but I'm one of only 3 active administrators for this entire wiki. There is a stub article on AJAX if you are interested in adding a section about the problem you experienced, but please try to keep your contribution as generic and clear as possible. -- Scjessey 15:26, 12 September 2007 (PDT)
The intended title looks appropriate to me! It may not be an AJAX-specific issue, but it's more likely to come up in an AJAX context. (See third-party link.) If you still don't like the title, feel free to rename it. As for AJAX - you just created it! It didn't exist (I checked first!!) when I tried to create a helpful tech support page for you guys for free. Rest assured I won't make any more contributions to this wiki...

I think you have got the wrong end of the stick here. The title of the page you created was too long and too specific, and the content wasn't generic enough for the average DreamHoster, so I deleted the article and moved the content to your talk page (so that nothing was lost). I then specifically created a stub article for AJAX in case you wanted to add any content to it (since your content was AJAX-related). No malice was intended, and I already apologized for being terse in my earlier response. Incidentally, I'm a DreamHost customer just like you. -- Scjessey 17:26, 12 September 2007 (PDT)
Moving the page content out of the main namespace is effectively the same as deleting it - as the User_talk namespace is not searched by default. I created the page so that others might find it useful. I suppose Google will still index this page.
