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 answered a question earlier - with admittedly a guess at some things to try - the poster replied with a comment full of obscenities .

I was going to report it, but it seems to have vanished, there is no record of my answer, the downvote or my comments on my account. I assume that there is a super delete because somebody reported the comment?

Or your answer was not upvoted and was the only answer, which would allow the question asker to delete the question. – Arjan Feb 19 '11 at 0:32
It was downvoted - but I though >10k uses could still see it – Martin Beckett Feb 19 '11 at 1:51

Since the answer was downvoted, and the comments were beginning to descend into Lord of the Flies territory, we just nuked it from orbit.

Good - i thought I had imagined it ..... – Martin Beckett Feb 19 '11 at 2:14
We need a visual of that process. – squillman Feb 19 '11 at 2:18

Have you checked the recently deleted list? Deleted posts do not show up in profiles, even for 10k users.

Developers (and possibly moderators) can hard delete a post, but this is relatively rare.
