My comments were in regards to this question being closed (which is now re-opened and locked).
There was growing support for the comment I made, but the comment being deleted is [in my opinion] rather totalitarian. Are all StackOverflow members required to share the same opinion about the site and the people that run it? What is this, North Korea?
In my experience, 130-odd upvotes for a question is rather rare, so to me it would seem like the community wants to see answers and considers it a good question. All it takes is 5 rule-enforcers to say “nup, not having this” and all of a sudden the question that the community wanted answers to is no longer answerable.
The “community-driven” model of SE sites has [in my opinion] turned into “a site where people mostly nominate themselves to become moderators moderate community-provided questions and answers”.
I don't think I'm the only one that thinks this, does anyone else feel similar?
Since I am particularly bad at getting my point across, what I am specifically trying to discuss is the deletion of a comment I made about SO being monotonous. Robert Harvey pointed out that it was likely due to it being flagged 3 times and was automatically deleted, which I think is acceptable. I thought that it was removed by a mod because it appeared to me that the comments were selectively deleted by a mod (when truthfully all of them should have been deleted) just to get rid of the comment I made about SO.
