Are mods to follow a set of rules when deleting posts, or are they given free reign to instantly delete an answer they do not like without giving the OP the chance to edit their answer?
I gave an answer to WIFI card for PC which was flagged by ArtOfCode as not meeting the criteria of having supporting reasons for the recommendation.
The quote attached to the flag/deletion is: "Answers should generally provide some explanation and detail about the products they recommend. Answers that don't may be removed, as I've just done here. If you edit some explanation in, it may be possible to restore this answer"
As the answer is deleted by a moderator, when you click to vote to undelete, you get the message "A moderator has deleted this post and it cannot be undeleted." Why give the idea that if I edit my answer to include a more detailed reasoning for my recommendation it could be restored, if in actuality it cannot? Also, is there nothing in the way of rules for mods when it comes to giving someone time to edit an answer before it is just deleted?
