Why were my comments removed from this question: How to calculate survivability of extremely harsh cold conditions??

My comment was along the lline of "'have' and 'die from' are not the same".

  • I would like a response from the mod that deleted this.

    1. They were somewhat abusive. 2. They did not serve the purpose of comments. 3. Comments are not forever, they can be deleted at any time.

My comment was have and die from are not the same

There was more within your comment which caused me to flag it to the mods under the flag titled

It contains harassment, bigotry or abuse.

The reason I flagged your comment in this manner was because it contained content which was attacking @ChrisRogers, who made a valid remark regarding your answer which I also upvoted as I agreed with it.

Along with your comment, in order to defend himself, @ChrisRogers responded to clarify what he said, which led to you making a dismissive, rude and attacking comment in return and I flagged that too.

Both of your comments and @ChrisRogers' defending comment was subsequently removed.

As I am not the mod who deleted it, I am not sure that it was necessarily deleted under this reason, but possibly.

To learn more about the flag I used, please read the stackexchange site code of conduct

  • "Have and die from" is basic English not harassment, bigotry or abuse. I can have a cut my finger and have pneumonia. I am more likely to die from the pneumonia.

    You might also add medicalsciences.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/comment to reiterate that comments are second class citizens anyway, ephemeral, volatile, subject to deletion at any time… Oct 6 '18 at 18:05

    @paparazzo - You conveniently omitted the "Wow, what a silly statement" from your original comment. That was what was flagged, and why it was removed. You will note that your followup comment without that has been allowed to remain.
