I was browsing through the active questions page today, and saw that Mooseman made an edit to this answer. He removed a link to an article an ebay. I figured it was due to our rule that we should avoid linking to product pages, but just because it's on ebay doesn't make it a product page, so I posted a comment asking @Mooseman to clarify his edit. However, my comment has since been deleted...

@Mooseman: Why did you remove the link to the Top 8 mittens and Gloves page? It's on ebay, but it's not a product page, it's an article. — Wipqozn 19 secs ago

Why was my comment deleted?

aka this comment: How to keep your hands warm in winter while working on a laptop?

EDIT: It looks like the link has since been added back in, which is good, but I still find it odd my comment was deleted.


I originally deleted your comment under the reason "obsolete". The issue had been fixed within the five minute grace period.

I have restored your comment and left my own reply, stating that the I fixed the link.

EDIT: I've since removed both comments as they are obsolete.

  • Makes sense. Thanks for replying, and reversing your edit.

As is written in the help for the comment privilege:

Comments are temporary "Post-It" notes left on a question or answer.

Comments are meant to be deleted if they are no longer relevant. When the action requested by your comment was performed, your comment became obsolete, and a moderator rightfully removed it as such.
