A question was seemingly deleted by its owner. When I went to revisit my answer to that question, naturally it was deleted as well, and below it, I found the line: "Why was your post deleted? See the faq."

I didn't see that the question itself was deleted, so I read the faq, figuring I might have done something wrong.

Maybe it could just say. "Answer is deleted because the question is deleted" to prevent confusion. Or did I indeed do something wrong there?

    Since it was delete at exactly the same second as the question it's clear that it was just deleted with the question. Still, a better message would be nice. – CodesInChaos Oct 13 '11 at 18:43

This seems sensible. Normally, you'd notice the question being deleted first, but following a direct link to it could obscure that fact... And the FAQ probably isn't relevant then.
