Why isn't there a communication of cause when an answer is deleted? I signed up a few days ago and posted my second answer to someone and was maliciously downvoted then deleted but someone with a huge reputation.
Nothing like "Such and Such is unacceptable" to give a clue as to any mistake. As it is not it just feels like the Reputed Music Professor was simply guarding his territory as resident know-it-all. Not saying that's true, just what it feels like.
Is this just a communication flaw inherent for stack exchange?
The post presently retains 2 downvotes and a single user claimed responsibility for both, which doesn't seem fair as a criteria for deletion, without mentioning the absurdity of the "reason". Keep in mind he or she only gave reason after I solicited the downvoter to communicate. A message which actually earned at least one upvote on the answer. I feel that if more people had a say in this it would be undeleted.
