Assuming the following, not entirely hypothetical exchange of comments:
User A: user B is a moron
Moderator C: @userA insulting other users is not acceptable, ...
Moderator C also deleted the comment from user A, as it was clearly offensive.
Does User A get a notification for the reply of moderator C if the target comment is removed? Does it matter if the moderator removes the comment before or after writing their own comment reply?
