In my question, on the main U&L site: Check if SSH is Enabled or Disabled in Solaris 11, I have deleted my own answer, but it hasn't disappeared. Why has it not gone? It has gone red though.

Deleted items are only soft deleted. You can still see them, we moderators can still see them, but it is not visible to the general public.

  • Thank you for that. It just was confusing in the beginning, cuz as I deleted it, I still saw it, and it looked like other people could still see it, but was highlighted red. – Kevdog777 Aug 10 '12 at 10:07

    Note that it's not just moderators: users with 10k rep and above see other people's deleted answers too. – Mat Aug 10 '12 at 13:02
  • It is a nice feature that not only moderators can see them, but the person who deleted it, too. That way I can safely remove my answers without worrying that I might be able to use what I wrote later on. If there just was no -10 rep penalty, then everything would be perfect... :-/ – mkdrive2 Feb 13 '16 at 21:39
