Why was my answer or comment removed from the Community?

Answers and comments are only removed when they don't quite measure up to one or more of our Community Guidelines. Most common reasons for removal include the following:

  • Lots of spelling/grammar errors, all-caps or "text-speak" (most people won't answer a question they can't quickly understand)
  • Off-topic - an answer that doesn't directly relate to the question being asked
  • TMI - including details that reveal too much about yourself or someone else
  • You don't really know - if that's the case, no need to say that you don't know - just move on to a different question
  • Copy/paste - Re-posting someone else's answer as your own is plagiarism, and isn't cool
  • Illegal - anything against the law is also against our Community Guidelines
  • Offensive/vulgar - we're not prudes, but in case my grandmother is reading, keep it relatively clean

Make sure to give answers that are really helpful, and that you'd be proud to have others on the internet find someday when they're searching for the same information.
