Is There Extraterrestrial Life on Saturn's Moon Enceladus?

I recently read a strange article on CNN about possible alien life on Saturn's moon Enceladus.  The strange thing wasn't the article however, what struck me as odd is that CNN took it down immediately after they posted it?

I doubt there is any conspiracy behind it but it was strange they would do that and so quickly too. It was a good read and I wanted to share it. I did however find another article that covered it on, it wasn't as good a read but it did have most of what CNN posted. Click here for the article >>>>>,8599,2109837,00.html

The moon has a crust of ice on the surface but under it is a huge ocean. Scientists believe that it covers the entire moon and that some spots would be hot and not bath water warm but boiling hot, so the surrounding water would be perfect temperature for life to flourish. What makes this find so interesting to me is that it is in our galaxy and wouldn't take light years to get there.

 For me, as soon as I read the article I started imagining what kind of creatures would be there, giving it's size the gravity would not be that strong so the life would be small. I would be willing to bet that there would be millions of different types of marine life, from fish to crustaceans and probably a lot of microscopic life. Of course my next thought was, I wonder if we could eat them? Who knows maybe a hundred years from now you might walk into a restaurant and ask to see the Enceladus menu. :D
