Are a lot of comments being deleted on this SE?
I am becoming frustrated at the continued removal of comments I have made, without any notification to me or notice that they were removed. Seemingly for seemingly no good reason.
I understand comments may sometimes get to long or contain insults so may need to be removed.
However when I reply to a comment which is discussing an answer to a question, without it being offtopic or insulting or such there would seem little basis for it to be removed.
Several comments I have made to issues I raised on meta are continually removed. I received no warning or even notification that comments were removed or were inappropriate.
My understanding is that if comments were abusive or inappropriate a warning would be given, or if comments were too long they would be removed with a message saying as much. For comments to simply disappear repeatedly is...odd.
Given that my comments only stated an opinion, were on topic and did not contain insults or have any other seemingly obvious reason for removal, I can only guess it was due to a moderator disagreeing with them.
I would like for this to stop. It is frustrating to express an opinion only to have it disappear without a trace for no reason. It is certainly not a way to encourage new users to the site and as I don't encounter this behavior on other SE sites I can't see it as being a standard policy.
