What happened to a comment I made (it wasn't a troll but an honest attempt to answer a question)

I made a comment in the thread at https://community.exede.com/exede/topics/when-exede-finnaly-will-create-unlimited-plans-like-its-don...  in response to the original poster's question of "And also ping time is horrible. The best ping time is 1 ms, Satellite has 800ms, it is just unacceptable, is there any technology in order to improve ping time bacause it is definitely cant work for online gaming or other ping sensitive tasks." and now that comment is gone.

The comment I made was not an attack of any kind or anything like that.  It was an honest attempt to answer the original poster's question, so I'm wondering why my comment is gone.  Could someone please tell me what happened?

Hi Xode0000

I'm not sure what happened. I looked at your comment history and didn't see a recently removed comment. Do you know if it posted? Did you get an email about a reply being removed? Sometimes it'll tell you what admin removed it. Your comments have all been helpful so I'd be surprised if one was purposely removed.

The comment did post and I check all of my comments after posting to make sure that they posted correctly.  I did not receive any email saying that a reply that I made had been removed.  My comment was similar to the one that GWalk900 posted in that thread about satellite ping times and what causes those ping times.  I wonder if the forum ate my comment.  Does my comment history show that comment by chance?

Ah I think I might know what happened. Was it a reply to a comment that was removed? I think that's what happened. I think there was a comment that was removed as it appeared to be spam by the actual forum so I think all the child comments (meaning obviously replies that fell under it) disappeared

xode0000,

"My comment was similar to the one that GWalk900 posted in that thread about satellite ping times and what causes those ping times."


I thought I had seen your post ... the thought occurred that perhaps my reply was redundant. I looked but never got a email copy of it.

I believe in the existence of Gremlins as they routinely infest forums, computers and networks.

Now your reply is the main one since the forum ate my reply, so it is good that you also posted your reply as well.
