What happened to this answer?

Is it deleted by SE admin?


  • It could be undeleted, but only by a moderator. Since a moderator was disputing the content, it seems unlikely that they would do that

  • I haven't been involved with that question, but looking at the answer advocated here, it's the usual one-sided, nationalistic flag waving. Intersting that the account aksing this meta question also made a dissapearing act... May 8, 2020 at 17:27

1 Answer 1


The user that posted the answer either deleted their account themselves, or had their account deleted or destroyed. When an account is deleted, all contributions with a negative score are also deleted (with some exceptions, see here). When an account is destroyed, all contributions are deleted regardless of score.

This post had a score of -1, so was deleted automatically by the Community user when the poster's account was removed.

  • So that's what it means that Community deleted a post. Good to know.

    @Bobson posts deleted by spam & rude flags will also be shown as "deleted by Community" too.
