TKR's answer to the question here What is minimalist about the minimalist program? was reduced to a comment. Why was that done? Who did it? That answer had many positive upvotes. I see no legitimate reason to reduce it to a comment.
I think my answer does answer the question (and the OP obviously did too). Note that the body of the question asks for something more than its title implies: basically, I understand it to be asking not only why minimalism is called that, but what are the reasons for its popularity. "For the life of me I don't understand its appeal" and "Is there a sensible reason for the existence of these lumbering structures" seem to go beyond the question "What is minimalist about the minimalist program", and my answer was directed at those parts of the question: namely, that the main reason for these structures' existence and popularity is a historical and institutional one. Presumably, whoever flagged my answer did so because they correctly thought it doesn't answer the question as summarized in the title, but this is not the same as not answering the question as actually posed in the body of the post.
Like I said under your answer, a moderator acted on a flag. We cannot disclose the name of the user that flagged the answer of course, that's confidential information.
The answer still exists, by the way, it's only hidden. So we can undelete it if necessary. So if this user disagrees with the deletion of his own answer he can appeal to us here by posting an answer.
I want to make this clear though: We don't delete answers because we don't like the user, but we need to make sure that an answer conforms to the rules. So if other users or we see that your answer has problems, we need to act, otherwise this site might lose quality and therefore users.
So, to you and TKR, I ask to listen to the comments that told you that your answers do not really answer the question. They are not bad posts, actually they are very informative and I like them, but they need to answer the question first.
Ask yourself: does my answer addresses the points in the question as much as possible?
So Tim, your answer had some comments claiming it didn't really address the question, and you admitted so yourself in a comment. So I asked you to highlight the parts that did address the question in your answer, but I still see no edits.
If your answer doesn't answer the question, and you agree with this, don't you think that deleting it would be justified? We can't make exceptions for you or for anyone else, so please, edit it and answer the question or consider removing it. It's good information but it's not related to the question.
