We often see people in emotionally charged threads attempting to reply to comments that have already been deleted, which perpetuates unproductive fights and stresses out the mods even more. Might it help to provide some sort of automatic indication (that is, one that activates without having to refresh the page) that a comment has been deleted? For example, fading out the comment to a light gray, or whatever color would be appropriate given the active theme.
Oh come on, people. Bad jokes are being deleted now? None of my posts are going to be left by the time you're done. [more inside]
I had a comment in this thread deleted, and I'm not sure why. I don't believe I was insulting or anything, but don't want to re-offend. How do I find out what happened?
Did I forget to hit "post" or was my comment deleted from this topic and if so, why?
This is NOT what AskMe is for. The poster even acknowledges it in defiance.
