Recently, while browsing stackoverflow, I came upon this question. As precedent dictates, we usually ask to see what the asker has tried. In response, the asker asked me to remove the comment. Should users ask to have comments removed?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
They can ask, but I'd just ignore that request.
If the OP has a problem with a comment he or she can flag your comment for mod attention. In this specific case, the mod would decline the flag though, there is nothing wrong with your request for more details.
You can do the same with that comment; I can understand it if someone were to flag it as non-constructive, for example. Either a moderator can then remove the comment, or, if enough people flag it too, it'll be auto-deleted.
