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

I posted a question, Restricting input to NSTextViewCell inside NSMatrix, on stackoverflow yesterday afternoon. Last night, there was an answer and some accompanying discussion. This morning, it's gone - the question is still there, but not the answer.

Maybe it got downvoted and the OP removed it. That's usually the case with these things. – alex May 5 '11 at 12:18

.... Sorry, I don't have any great ideas at the moment, it's been a long day. I'll try to look at this again tomorrow ... In fact, I'm going to delete my answer so that it won't show in the list.

The author said in a final comment "In fact, I'm going to delete my answer so that it won't show in the list." and then of course deleted their answer (at 5:41Z).

The answer has been probably deleted from the user who wrote it.

The other explanation I could give, without seeing the answer, is that the answer has been flagged and then deleted, automatically or by a moderator.
To notice that some questions are automatically flagged by the Community user.
