I would like to get memail notification of deleted comments which include the original text.

I did search and found this
. As best I can determine, there isn't currently an auto notify option (please correct me if I am wrong). I feel like that's a problem.
The site is less legible to me than most boards I have been on. That isn't a criticism, just an observation. It takes some effort to determine if a post I made is actually gone. On a few occasions, I have wondered or initially assumed that it was a technical glitch, possibly at my end. I wrote a post today that I am not finding. I can't imagine why anyone would have deleted it and it is possible I simply wrote it but somehow failed to actually post it.
I feel like not notifying me denies me information that will help me effectively participate. (For example, if I assume it was a technical glitch and try to repost, moderators tend to view that as bad behavior if they actually deleted it. Plus I don't have copies of what I wrote so as to look for patterns of what types of things I may be prone to which routinely get deleted.) I am not asking for an explanation. Just a memail with the original text in it if you opt in to notifications.
