This one is only for users high enough on the food chain to be able to see deleted posts!

The title says it all and I'm asking specifically for the deleted answer on this post.

Most animals (humans included) learn from their mistakes. IMHO, there is now nothing to be learned by this user as his post was deleted and he/she (probably) doesn't know/understand the reasons.

Most users coming to the StackExchange network, don't really know or appreciate what it's all about. (Hey, I thought StackExchange was part of the ExpertsExchange Network in the beginning and that's why I lurked around for months before finally subscribing and gave this pesky website my OpenID )

So? What's the verdict? Delete the pesky comments and undelete the post???

Oh, and feel free to call me names and insult me: I'm a dinosaur: I'm old so I have a very thick skin (as not to feel the daggers in my back), a very broad back (I can carry tons of work) and especially: I've got a very small brain! (Don't t h i n k t o o m u c h!). And people like me are nearly extinct as well! :D

  • What does bother me is 3 (!) people adding pro forma comments. You only need one. Adding more is just plain rude.

    It's also worth pointing out there is a link below deleted answers that says "Why was my answer deleted" and links to askubuntu.com/help/deleted-answers. It would be better if we could a) stop people from rudely posting more canned comments and b) improve the existing ones so they are actually helpful.

  • @Seth Well, I never had any of my answers deleted for me, so I wouldn't know, but that is helpful info! ;-) How about re-opening this one and give the guy a chance to improve himself? (he was improving... And very probably took the pro forma comments as actual t y p e d answers...)

    I can't undelete an answer in hopes the OP will make it better. Seems all he had was a bug report, that doesn't make much of an answer. I will, however, convert it to a comment.

  • I thought that it can be some feature at the level share edit flag alike one-way-post-convert to convert some negative estimated post to zero estimated comment ... this the way, @Seth! ))
