I want this deleted answer to be completely erased:


Is it possible?

  • It seems to me that deleted answers are removed after a time, but I'm not 100% sure. This I assume is so that you have the opportunity to fix the answer and undelete it. I also think you need a certain reputation to be able to see them. Aug 25 '13 at 12:21

    Deleted answers are never actually completely erased from the system unless an SE employee does so. Aug 25 '13 at 17:08
  • I don't see it at all - but I have much less points.

  • @Voitcus You aren't far away from being able to see deleted posts: history.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/moderator-tools

  • Why would you want to completely erase the answer? Deletion already returned all the rep points you would have lost from down-votes.

Stack Exchange employees occasionally purge post revisions that contain sensitive information (passwords, credit card numbers, etc), so it's certainly possible.

You could try contacting Stack Exchange directly (through the "contact us" link in the footer), but since there's no sensitive information in your answer, I wouldn't be surprised if they declined your request.
