In How did Alan Dershowitz end up on Trumps' legal team? , the question was two sentences long. I posted a comment, asking whether Trump has a bad record on civil liberties, because the question implied that there was a contradiction between Dershowitz being a civil libertarian, and him defending Trump against impeachment. It got deleted.
I posted a comment asking why the comment was deleted, and it too has been deleted.
The only comment posted by a moderator was "Comments deleted. Please try to keep your comments relevant to the question."
Why was my comment deleted, and is it inappropriate to ask for more details about the reasoning of the OP in asking a question?
I am asking about the comment here in meta, because I tried asking in chat, and did not get a reply.
