In general it is not against the rules to paraphrase a news item and comment on it. The exceptions to that would be if the article or your comments fit into some other areas. For example, if the article discussed advocating suicide, then it would not be allowed. If the article or your comments were of an overtly religious or political nature then it also would not be allowed.
Was your complete thread removed? Or did you post to another thread? Generally, when I have to edit or remove a post of a longtime member, I explain why either in the edited post or via email.
