I answered the question Why don't Presidential debates disable the candidates' microphones while it's not their turn to speak? with this answer.
It was an answer and had an answer in it. But then it was deleted by three users because one user claimed that it didn't answer the question. For those who can't read the answer due to not having enough reputation, my answer was that the media and the major political parties like the confusion so they don't want an orderly format.
Some of the other reasons listed include
- It was just an opinion with no evidence. All of the answers to this question are just opinions. The highest voted answer starts with "Just a theory:", offers no evidence and then takes a jab at one candidate. Only one answer actually points to anything outside the answer as evidence. Why would evidence only be required for one opinion and not all of the others?
- It was a solution to the problem, but not an answer to the question. 3 other answers also suggest solutions. Does my more complete solution disqualify my answer?
Shouldn't Politics SE be a place where we can ask questions, give and get answers without a few super users shouting down every opinion they don't agree with?
