Disappearing stories

I just watched a story go from number 1 on HN down to the 3rd page almost instantly.

Its URL is https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=7777829 . The title is "How I Feel as Young Father Involved in Early-stage Startup". The story and the comments did not cast a good light on startups in general.

Since Hacker News is nothing but a promotional tool for Y Combinator, I image Paul Graham or one of his goons decided that such stories were bad for business, and promptly dropped it in the toilet.

I consider Hacker News to be essentially a type of cult.
