  • No, I don’t really see why I should have.  If you can find documented policy and/or other high-rep users that support your position, feel free to bring them to my attention.   Meanwhile, thank you for conforming to the standard practices of Stack Exchange. – Scott Jul 21 '19 at 16:41
  • Hi madrat. I think Scott's comment would have been more constructive if it added that all edits can be viewed, by clicking where it says "edited yesterday". This means the deleted content was/is still available for you to copy. Since you have some reputation already, I believe it is possible for you to write questions about site policies on unix.meta.stackexchange.com if you like. Given that, I will resist the temptation to debate this further here :-). – sourcejedi Jul 21 '19 at 19:03
  • Yes, sourcejedi, that's correct. – madrat Jul 25 '19 at 15:03
