When I delete an answer of my own due to the fact that it is incorrect, which someone else pointed out in the comments section of my answer, I frequently reply to that user using the familiar
@user confirming that they were right. After that, I remove my answer.
My question is: does that user, whom I addressed using
@user, still gets (part of) my reply in his inbox, even though my answer is removed after a few seconds I replied to him/her?
