Yesterday, I posted a question and got some good answers. One in particular really helped me get the wording on confronting the issue right, but I can't see it, nor can I accept it anymore because it had been deleted (by whom I also don't know).

Why was this particular answer deleted? If it wasn't up to the site standards on Answers, why not?

  • The OP deleted it themselves, if you're talking about Tinkeringbell's answer.

  • Ah. Hrm, do I just flag the question and try have the answer undeleted, in this case?

  • I've pinged her. She may undelete it herself or answer your question here explaining why she removed it.

    @Tinkeringbell that's the answer I think. Post it?

The answer from anongoodnurse there is basically the same, and has one other very important point: To address the group and not the individual.

I re-read my answer and came to the conclusion it was bad advice, especially when compared to that... I didn't want to leave it around for another person to stumble upon, try and fail horribly. I deleted it because there is better advice there right now.
