OK, so there's no problem, just curiosity. Looked at my User Panel and checked on a thread I commented in yesterday and it's gone. The +rep I got in that thread is gone too from my list of commented posts, and I have more up-voted posts in my statistics(63) than I have in the blue thumbs-up icon (60). My theory is that yesterday's thread starter was flagged as a spammer and his post was deleted. Since the starting post was zapped, all the follow-up posts were deleted (i.e. mine) too because what's the point of keeping a thread with an initial spam post and a bunch of posts commenting that the original poster is a spammer?
I'm assuming that's what happened. Just curious. Also, when a post gets deleted, does the rep/votes associated with the deleted post get deleted too? And is it truly deleted or is it still saved in the database somewhere and just invisible? Again, just curious. I worked at a company where there was a subpoena and the lawyers were getting frantic about finding "deleted" posts that they needed in order to prove whatever they were trying to prove. It prompted a fascinating discussion from an IT expert about the definition of "deleted", but that's a thread in itself.
