Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

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.
