comment Why was my recent question about Jewish CEO's deleted?
Two questions from over three years ago. They're not a valid comparison (and if they were, it would suggest the old questions are now off-topic, not that the new one should be allowed).

comment Questions about James Damore's claims about biological differences in distribution of traits among genders
If you want the questions, ask them. Others may equally lack time to do so, and likely due to asking/answering different questions instead that interest them.

comment Deletion of my answer on the EPA Particulate Matter question
But that is a separate issue that is irrelevant here, and is largely exaggerated or untrue (moderation lacking integrity? choose not to engage in discussion? that such discussion is the only way to advance understanding? heavy-handed deletion is causing many users to leave? total junk even if it was addressing appropriate concerns). It is simply unnecessary and undesirable, and definitely skirts if not crossed the be nice line.

comment Deletion of my answer on the EPA Particulate Matter question
The entirety of your last two paragraphs is nothing but bitter complaint and unjustified abuse. Please remove it, it is irrelevant to seeking an explanation of your answer's deletion, and makes it appear that you do not seek such an explanation in good faith.

comment Deletion of my answer on the EPA Particulate Matter question
Comments removal and answer removal are done by entirely separate processes. An answer is not typically removed immediately unless it is glaringly off piste or low quality, which prior moderation history demonstrates. There are answers several years old that have not been improved to the extent necessary to justify being kept, and yet they remain. Supposing an answer to be "collateral damage" for a comment string is well beyond reasonability.

comment Should we routinely move more comment threads to chat?
Lower traffic + Heavier moderation of comments = A forced habit of not leaving long comment threads on the Q&A. People are trained by now to move them or be pinged, and those that didn't learn no longer come here, and the rest is occasional forgetting or new users.

comment Should we routinely move more comment threads to chat?
Where are you getting the sense Sk is not so much smaller than TWP? Questions there routinely get multiple answers, dozens of upvotes and downvotes, meta is almost never without a new post daily, and every question has hundreds of views. Here? Lucky to get one answer after a week, extremely lucky to get total voting in double-digits, and downright miraculous for anybody except moderators to post a new meta question. I see more TWP threads that should be moved to chat on a single question and its answers than I do in an entire week on SK. It's just not a problem here.

comment Sorry, but we don't care about your political opinions
I thought the comment policy on Stack Exchange is pretty clearcut: clarification, suggestion of changes, discussion of topicality. So, I wouldn't be sorry that people had wasted their effort to put personal or social or political discussion in them either. Chat is for chatting, comments on content are for commentary on that specific content, the names and policy say it all.

comment Sorry, but we don't care about your political opinions
Title improvement: "We don't care about your political opinions". It's not something to be sorry for, any more than I'm not sorry for not caring about users' preference in ice cream flavour, it's simply irrelevant to scientific skepticism.

comment Why does this answer still have the “citation needed” notice?
It's status-completed then?
