How did someone delete their question?

I was in a conversation, or answer thread, earlier on and the question was erased... I understood if it had been answered it couldn’t have been deleted— there didn’t seem to be a reason for the forum to deleted it for language or content. Thanks...


Are you a moderator, how did you...?

    Posts are removed when enough users report them as violations. The user can post again here and ask "Was this question a violation" and include the exact text of the question, including any updates, URLs, or images associated with it, and the users here will tell them if it appears to be a violation or not. If not, they have 7 days to appeal to have it reinstated. 


    Every user on this site is a "moderator". No staff of Yahoo/Verizon monitor this site. Any post that is a violation (or even if it isn't) may be reported by any user by clicking the flag icon at the bottom right of the post. When enough other users have also reported the post as a violation, it will be removed from the display. The user who made the post, may appeal it's removal if they choose (appeal info is at the Help link at the bottom right of the page).

    A question can be deleted if NO one answer it only by the asker by clicking or taping the edit button and hit the delete.

    Otherwise they can be deleted by someone reporting it.

    It was a violation of the rules. If you told us the content, we could probably explain it. If you want to know the reason for the violation, post "Why was this question (answer) a violation?" and add the original e-mail you got and/or any details you remember so the users can see the exact context. The experienced users here will explain it to you. Many times the violation is not in the question but in the added details and updates.
