I normally wouldn't worry about a deleted comment, but I got a reply to my comment on this question that seems to suggest I should post it as an answer instead (the only reason I didn't in the first place is I hadn't expected to write so much, and figured it would be insufficient as an answer and more appropriate as a comment).

However, when I clicked my inbox notification to read the full response (and convert my comment to an answer), not only had the response been deleted, but my comment had as well!

Could a mod provide the content of my comment, so I can repost it as an answer?
