# Can questions which have answers disappear without a trace?

A recent question had an answer which couldn't quite convince me. But when I wanted to have a look at it again the question seemed to have disappeared completely. In my activity log no trace of the comment I posted, and in answerer's activity log no sign of his answer.

I thought questions could only be deleted when they don't have answers yet?

• You should be able to find it with your rep level. Ohh, and Congratulations on 50k. Jun 8, 2012 at 11:55
• @Kortuk - Thanks. I can't seem to find it, but since it's been deleted I'm no longer interested in it. It's just that a while ago I also suggested to somebody to delete his question, and he said he couldn't because it had an answer. Jun 8, 2012 at 12:08
• I can find the answer to this, will take me just a bit. I believe it is an answer with 2 upvotes will block deletion or a question with 2 upvotes cannot be deleted by the user. But in that case if it is a poor question moderators will honor the request with deletion for the user. Jun 8, 2012 at 12:09

Jeff has said you can only one-click delete when

They can't disappear without a trace, no, but they're harder to find than just scrolling through /questions. Mods can find them with the deleted:1 search option, and can view deleted answers in user profiles, but they don't show up in the ordinary listing.
• Deleted posts don't ordinarily show up in search results. You could find it by using your browser history, or by knowing that it's about 6 hours old and therefore between http://electronics.stackexchange.com/q/33477 and http://electronics.stackexchange.com/q/33482 - Your first try adjusting the URLs would be http://electronics.stackexchange.com/q/33478, which is the link you want.
