Yesterday I answered a question from a guy who was wondering about his website being displayed incorrectly on different browsers, especially the mobile ones (like Safari on iPhone).
I answered his question with my best intentions and put quite a thought into my reply. Therefore I got already 4 ups/likes (don´t know how to call em) after a short period of time. But when I logged into stackoverflow this morning my at least 40 reputation gained through the answer were gone, as well as the whole question itself, including any notifications in my inbox, comments etc., every track of the question is gone.
My questions now is: What happened? Can a question be removed completely, even undoing the reputation it has delivered to some guy and everything else that has happened because of it? If so, by whom and under what conditions?
I was/am kind of angry, I didn't get any notification about what happened, it's just gone, even the (in my opinion) useful question and answer.
I don´t know if that has happened to anyone else before or was just a bug because of some kind of update in the last hours - maybe this is supposed to be directed to the support, but I feel right to ask/post it this way (if it isn´t, please tell ;) - maybe the fact that I can´t find any suitable tag is an indicator it is the wrong way).
