This question already has an answer here:
- A guide to moderating comments 5 answers
I answered a question and then continued to clarify things for the asker, both by editing my answer and by answering directly in the comments.
Now the original asker has deleted his questions, perhaps as he learned a bit more, thinking they looked like stupid questions, so the conversation is broken and my comments don't make much sense. They were actually good questions and cast light on the problem, the conversation might have been useful to a later reader.
So my question is, should I now go back and re-format my comments to make them general clarifications, or delete them and embellish my answer, or just leave them?
