What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I remember in the question What’s your biggest fear as a programmer? there was one answer that got heavily downvoted because the user said something like "Having to learn .NET". Last time I checked it has somewhere around -20.

Are answers automatically deleted if they have been heavily downvoted?

Answers will only be automatically deleted if they are flagged 6 times as spam or offensive. Downvoting won't delete them.

Incidentally, the answer you are asking about (only viewable by 10k+ users) was deleted by the owner. It had 17 downvotes and 7 upvotes.

Ah, okay. Thanks for looking at the answer, just got confused. – TheLQ Aug 6 '10 at 1:13
Why was the entire question removed? I think it was a good example of spontaneous and clever spirit of stackexchange people, closing would have been enough. – Hernán Eche Mar 16 '12 at 14:08
