If i do @Tom and create a comment, but delete the comment before Tom reads it, is it still listed in his "responses" tab?

My previous question is closed as a duplicate and got -10 votes (for what reason i don't know?!) although the answer for that question could not be found in the "duplicate thread".

No, but it is listed in the global inbox (the StackExchange™ MultiCollider SuperDropdown™).

+1, but you missed a TM on MultiCollider – davidsleeps May 20 '11 at 3:32
@davidsleeps MultiCollider SuperDropdown™ is one term, and not two. Just search for the term here on MSO search and you'll see that MultiCollider is never ™ed. – waiwai933 May 20 '11 at 4:05
@waiwai933, then I'll feature request it... – davidsleeps May 20 '11 at 4:05
this is not actually true; some comments can slip through if they are created and deleted very rapidly but in general comment deletions do propagate back to the global inbox. – Jeff Atwood May 20 '11 at 4:44
thank you people. finally someone understood my question. my exact question at… got -10 downvotes for i don't know what reason? – Pacerier May 20 '11 at 7:47
@Pacerier: One reason might be that your original title didn't describe your question at all. (Another reason, but that only adds to it: Downvotes on questions are now free.) – Hendrik Vogt May 20 '11 at 10:18
@Hendrik Vogt comon, just a typo mistake and there's such a huge vote difference in 2 exact same questions?! – Pacerier May 20 '11 at 14:21
@Pacerier: I have no idea what you mean by "typo mistake". Wait, I do have an idea: Do you mean you typed that title accidentally? If yes, then I can't follow you. – Hendrik Vogt May 20 '11 at 16:00
@Hendrik Vogt its a Ctrl-C Ctrl-V typo mistake understand now? – Pacerier May 21 '11 at 19:32
@Pacerier: Now I understand it better. But I still wonder a bit why you didn't see that immediately. (By the way, although I do see other issues with that question, I wouldn't vote it down, now that the title is fixed.) – Hendrik Vogt May 21 '11 at 19:37
@Hendrik Vogt because that ask-question-page loves to "jump" automatically i easily miss it – Pacerier May 23 '11 at 2:14
