First time on Meta. I made (at least) two comments on this question, both of which were deleted.
I can't remember which comment was made first.
Some context to 'first comment': initially this question was closed. I voted to reopen and in the end this question was reopened. I might claim that the subsequent interest in the question justifies this. I commented along the lines of 'I am glad this question was reopened'. This has been deleted.
The second comment said roughly 'I wonder how long until someone suggests that a calculator be used'. This also been deleted... shortly afterwards a user suggested more-or-less 'use a calculator'.
Assuming these are moderator-deletions, I am asking why are they being so anal? Mathematics is a human pursuit and emotion and humour (?) are a part of the human condition.
Of the two comments, I think the 'first' was more appropriate for deletion... but the second?
