The question here is clearly a duplicate and was correctly closed as such. But then it was also deleted by Community. There doesn't appear to be anything in the question demanding quick deletion. Is there a set of conditions that lead to deletion on top of closure? Or is there some unique circumstance about this question in particular?

  • It's too quick for Roomba. Has the user been deleted? IIRC, that will delete negatively scoring posts automatically. (I can't see the question, I don't have enough reputation.)

The question was deleted as a side effect of the user being destroyed.

The user was destroyed because, via mod tools, I determined with very high confidence that it was our resident Nazi troll.

  • When the user was destroyed, did that have the side effect of cancelling all up- and down-votes? The question is currently listed at 0/0, suggesting the answer is "Yes". Nov 18, 2020 at 20:24
  • @PieterGeerkens It deletes votes cast by the destroyed user, but AFAIK, it should not invalidate received votes. Are you saying you voted on the question and it's now unrecorded?

  • I don't recall if I voted on the question or not. I simply was surprised to see no votes at all when I perused the question. Nov 19, 2020 at 1:34
