A question that I had commented on was moved from SO to DBA.SE. In the process, it seems that 4 out of 5 existing comments migrated as well. The exception was my highly rated comment, which happened to be the 2nd comment (not the first or last) and may be the only one that was edited. Why would this be?

I believe I'm a member on both sites.

UPDATE

I have since added the same comment (w/o the DBA.SE link) to the migrated question.

The only thing I can see is that you're the one who suggested the migration... Perhaps your comment was deleted automatically because of that? The algorithm must have thought "operation complete, this comment is no longer necessary". –  MDeSchaepmeester Apr 30 '13 at 13:49

That's because you mentioned/linked to DBA.SE. The heuristic figured you where talking about migrating, and so removed it. –  Time Traveling Bobby Apr 30 '13 at 13:49

@M.Night: You should place that as an answer. –  Al E. Apr 30 '13 at 13:52
    
@M.NightDemonbobby interesting...I had provided too much info by providing the link! –  Tim Lehner Apr 30 '13 at 13:53
    
The same thing happens if you comment with a link to another question, which the first question then gets closed as a duplicate of. –  hammar Apr 30 '13 at 14:11

This is a harmful feature then. It should be turned off. –  Pëkka Apr 30 '13 at 14:17
