I had posted a question http://www.physicsoverflow.org/30309/termination-of-diagrams-in-chiral-perturbation-theory? a long time back, got an answer from Arnold, thanked him and went away. I logged in to the site today after a long time, and I have two notifications of the question being answered (again?) about two weeks back. However, Arnold's answer is the only one that stands right now. Are the other two answers deleted for some reason? Can I see what they were?
PS - I hope this query is not inappropriate for "chat" section. I was unsure whether or not this is suited for "meta". Please feel free to delete this in case this question is inappropriate, and/or if I'm messing up the site decorum/policies by asking this. I'm new here and I don't know any better way of posting this.
Of course this is fine on meta, and you don't need to be afraid of "messing up the site decorum" here - queries regarding possible moderator abuse are accepted and appreciated, helps keep us in check : )
And yeah - Arnold's right - there were two answers, one was gibberish and the other spam, both posted by the same anonymous IP. The spam answer had two flags, the gibberish one had one flag. The gibberish answer was posted on 12 May 2015, and I deleted it, and the spam answer was posted on 13 May 2015, and was deleted by Dilaton. Posts of this kind generally get unilaterally deleted, because the deletion tends to be uncontroversial.
Thanks for the clarification and the details, @dimension10 :)
There were two other spam ''answers'' consisting of 1 line each, one with gibberish, the other with just a link to an unrelated commercial site. Such answers are considered as spam and are deleted. (They are visible to moderators, and indeed carry flags.)
This kind of questions belongs to Meta/Support. I recategorized the item.
Thanks for the clarification, Arnold. :)
