# My answer deleted and converted to a comment?

My answer to Non-associative, non-commutative binary operation with a identity was deleted. Why/how did that happen?

• I'm seeing your answer right now. Did you undelete it? COuld you have inadvertedly clicked "delete" instead of "edit"? – Arturo Magidin Mar 15 '11 at 3:49
• @Arturo, I wasn't planning to edit, but, yes, it's possible that I inadvertently clicked "delete", in which case, my apologies to all concerned. I didn't see an "undelete" option at the time, but I did see one when I went back to look again, and I exercised that option. All is well now. – Gerry Myerson Mar 15 '11 at 4:05
• It did not say "deleted by owner" which presumably implies that it was deleted by someone other than Gerry. – Bill Dubuque Mar 15 '11 at 4:34
• It looks like the first answer was moved to the comment section by a moderator. – t.b. Mar 15 '11 at 4:55
• @Theo, yes, I just noticed that my answer shows up in the comment section. I know enough not to argue with the moderators. If a moderator sees fit to move my edited answer up to the comments as well, so be it. – Gerry Myerson Mar 15 '11 at 5:08
