I ask a question:

Is Top provably not cartesian closed?

and get a very helpful answer. But I also get a not very helpful exchange of comments. I get invited to continue this exchange as chat, and I accept the invitation. A few weeks later my reply on chat has disappeared. This doesn't seem to be a satisfactory resolution to the exchange of comments.

  • $\begingroup$ I cannot see the discussion continued in chat. What about this situation is unsatisfactory? Also, I noticed that you accepted an (the) answer to the question. $\endgroup$ – The Chaz 2.0 Apr 3 '12 at 1:44
  • $\begingroup$ That's the point - I was very happy with the answer but not with the unhelpful comments. I did continue the discussion as chat, but all trace of that has disappeared, leaving just a trail of comments that keeps suggesting there is something incorrect in my question, with no resolution. $\endgroup$ – Rob Arthan Apr 3 '12 at 8:22
  • $\begingroup$ Well, if this has been resolved in chat, you could ask the other person to delete the comments. $\endgroup$ – Phira Apr 7 '12 at 20:18

Chat rooms are automatically deleted if they don't have a minimum amount of messages in them. I don't remember the exact amount, but I think your room is just slightly below the required number.

  • $\begingroup$ I am sure that is the explanation. If I had known that is how it works, I would have moved to chat after the very first unhelpful comment. $\endgroup$ – Rob Arthan Apr 3 '12 at 8:24
