A new user asked a question about why "national socialism" had the term socialism in their name. within 5 minutes it had 2 downvotes, 1 close-vote and was deleted, while I was trying to comment why this question might be actually worth answering, despite its negative perception.

So I wonder, why was it deleted so quickly? Did the OP himself remove it?

1 Answer 1


The post author deleted the post himself - the downvotes and close votes were probably received because the post was poorly written, with typos in the title and a question body that lacks details.

If the post was undeleted, it should probably also be closed as a duplicate of this question.

    Ok, I expected there to be a similar question, but then, as you said, it should be closed as duplicate but not deleted. Thanks for the information, i was a bit confused there.
