Why the proposal to allow logged in users to use a tool to see deleted articles has been rejected?[edit]

I have a question for all inclusionist fellows. This policy proposition received 38 Yes votes (46%) and 45 No votes (54%). Is this a consensus? As long as consensus requires at least 2/3 of persons to agree, consensus has not been reached!.
Then why the deletionists won the poll and do not allow us to see deleted articles ? Something very strange happened in that poll. I think that this poll must reopen immediatly and allow more people to vote on it, in order for consensus to be reached. Only if 2/3 of the people agree the not_see_decision (or the see_decision if we manage to overcome our enemies) should become a legitimate one.
Also, as inclusionist team, can we propose an alternative proposition? Can we propose a yes-no poll for the following policy: "Allow logged in users to use a tool to see ALL deleted articles that are characterized as NON illegals by an elected committee of eponymous lawyer-professional wikipedians ". What do you think about it? Iasson 12:27, 4 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Good luck finding a group of people willing to do that. It would be complete drudgework, done by people qualified to make more substantive contributions. —Ben Brockert < 00:16, 5 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Even if we cannot find this lawyers group, it is obvious that schools and many other articles are NOT illegal, so please keep you deletionist vandalism for the real illegal and copyright articles and let subscribed users to be able to see the legal deleted articles. You have not reach consensus in order to be legitimate to prohibit users for seeing legal deleted articles, so give us the tool to see legal deleted articles, and do it now!Iasson 08:54, 6 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Delete is defined as "to discard (ie, destroy) information". Articles were deleted for a reason. Allowing viewing of deleted articles undermines the intent of deletion. --Wikiacc (en) 19:37, 29 July 2005 (UTC)
As far as I know, "delete" is defined as "hide information". Nothing is deleted in wikipedia. The point is, who is allowed to see deleted information? Why some people can see deleted information, while others are not allowed to see it? Iasson 21:29, 8 July 2006 (UTC)
Although the point of deletion is to get rid of the article, what if the article was deleted wrongfully? I believe that in addition to AfDs, we should also have AfRs (Articles for Restoration). Also, I believe that we can at look at them and then talk to an admin if one really needs it to be restored. Greeves 23:55, 13 January 2007 (UTC)
We already have deletion review. LOL! Greeves 21:28, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
