Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For some reason I seem to recall that SO FAQ's table of what can be done with N rep points included a data point for 5000 rep.

Yet, looking at the FAQ now, I no longer see it.

Was it just a fluke in my memory?

Or did the Matrix produce a black cat and changed the FAQ (and supposedly site rules) on me in the last month?

It used to be that you could delete any comments from your post if you had 5000 rep. They changed that, though.

Here is the old UserVoice request detailing the reason:

Jeff's response was:

comment flagging renders deletion obsolete

Basically, because you can flag any comments, there is no need for the feature any longer.
