Recently I asked a question and criticism was brought forward in terms of very condescending comments, that were later removed. (Timeline follows.)
First question: Does every user with sufficiently many rep points has the power to delete comments that are not his own?
Tempers flared during the comments, as one can see by reading through them and I felt pretty insulted, being called essentially stupid and that I should answer the question myself (what's the point in asking one, if the answer you get is "just look at a simple example, it's obvious" - well it's not obvious to me), which resulted in me not reacting well to his comments.
In the spirit of the openness of the site I put the above link to the printed pdf as a "full disclosure" link as a comment. Then there was a pause of roughly a day when the question was left alone.
But then the comment with the link was also deleted (I will insert one more comment to my question containing to a link to this meta) and the question was put on hold for being unclear, by this user and later some other users. This is suspicious, since if the question was truly unclear, why not put it on hold immediately ? If just the link with the comment would have been deleted, I would have left it at that, but this leaves me with the feeling that they ganged up on me to put on hold, as a kind of weird revenge from keeping the comment there with the link.
(As it stands, I still agree that the question ask a very plain, standard yes-no mathematical question and is not unclear.)
Second question: Is this kind of behaviour -making nasty comments, then deleting them all and then putting the question suspiciously late on hold- acceptable behaviour on this site?
