Recently, when a user deleted his account on Lifehacks, his questions with negative scores and no accepted answers were deleted, including this feature request. However, some users thought that this question was useful, and started a (successful) motion to undelete it.

I don't think it should have been deleted -- yes, the question had a negative score, no there wasn't an accepted answer....but there was an answer with a positive score. Why should positive score answers be deleted, ever?

In short:

Please protect positive score answers to deleted users' negative score questions from damaging deletion by the Roomba.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    Not only that, but IMO a deleted user's meta posts should not be automatically deleted. Sometimes it's valuable to have a record for "considered and rejected" to point to. – Monica Cellio Dec 24 '14 at 22:28
  • @MonicaCellio Good point. – Shokhet Dec 24 '14 at 22:29
  • @JanDvorak I don't understand what you're saying. – Shokhet Dec 24 '14 at 22:30
