Okay, I'm repeating the call for a needed feature: having to explain why we're deleting a venue when we delete it.

I noticed someone had deleted "Golden Age Collectables" which I had originally added less than a year ago. I wondered if it had closed. According to the site, they have not--and the site's been updated as recently as this week, so it's not like the place is gone but they neglected to take the website down too.

I've reinstated the page, but now I'm suddenly paranoid about listings disappearing without rhyme or reason.

EDIT: The same user deleted a bunch of stuff that didn't fit into his idea of a book-related venue. I'm restoring anything that was a legit entry.

EDIT: Finished. Some of the deleted venues had literally dozens of book events!
