This is a deleted answer. When I open it it shows me one comment, along with the option to "show 1 more comment":
However, when I click on "show 1 more comment" nothing happens. That is to say that no new comments appear, but the "show 1 more comment" link disappears, as it has been "used up":
Now this phenomenon is not simply because the post is deleted, as there are other deleted posts where I can expand comments by clicking on "show 1 more comment". For instance, this deleted answer:
And this deleted answer:
So why in the first example does an additional comment not appear when I click "show 1 more comment"?
Now I happen to know that there was a deleted comment(s?) on that answer. But if the comments were deleted then it shouldn't show me the "show 1 more comment" link in the first place. For instance, in this deleted answer there was also a deleted comment, and I am not shown any "show 1 more comment" link:
My only theory is that perhaps the comment got deleted after the post was deleted, so maybe the "show 1 more comment" link is stuck there because that's how it was at the time the post was deleted, but I have no idea if that even makes sense.
I found a similar question, but it has an answer saying that this just happens from time to time and it self-corrects; however, in this case it does not appear to be self-correcting so I don't know if it's the same thing.
