Comments on deleted posts don't reliably notify the owner of the deleted post about their existence, depending on the exact timing the post owner might never be informed about that comment. There is an explicit exception for comments from moderators made in a short timeframe before deleting the post, this allows them to explain the deletion reason and have the user actually notified about it.
Now, the users that flagged the post for moderator attention could have explained as well in a comment what the problem was with that post, this is not something you need a moderator for. But one problem with that is that the moderator deleting the post has to repeat that comment if they want to ensure that the user gets notified. If the post is community-deleted, I believe that no notification at all will happen.
This behaviour hinders a bit the moderation by the community, and makes diamond moderator intervention necessary in cases where they shouldn't be needed. Explaining e.g. that the post is "not an answer" in a commment is something that any established community member should be able to do, no diamond necessary for that.
So I propose that comments on deleted answers falling under the following rules also create notifications like it already happens for comments from diamond moderators:
- the user making the comment flagged the post or voted to delete it
- this action happened around the same time as the comment
We should encourage users to take a more active role in explaining our rules to new users, instead we discourage them by never notifying those users about comments from non-diamonds when a post is deleted.
