Do deleted comments exist anywhere?

My recent question about Trump's January 6 speech had this comment:

If I am sitting by a deep swimming pool and see an unsupervised toddler child playing close to the edge - and then watch the child fall in and drown, and do absolutely nothing to prevent it - I am, certainly under English law, guilty of a crime.

I was about to reply to it (in fact there would be guilt under almost any legal system other than English Common Law), but the comment is no longer there, and I don't remember who made it.


Not for normal users. Moderators can see them, however.

One small exception would be that if the comment was posted, but not deleted, before the previous Sunday at around 03:00 UTC, it would be able to be queried via the Stack Exchange Data Explorer, which receives a snapshot of the network's current state at that time.
