While running some Data Explorer queries, I noticed a user who has no answers with less than 2 votes (more than 100 total). As I don't yet have 10k I can't view the deleted posts, but I am assuming that there is no possible way this would occur over so many answers without having deleted low-scoring answers.
I'm not sure I've ever deleted answers*. I can understand the feeling of being sensitive to piling up low- or zero-voted posts — I am too, but this is why I usually just don't post late answers to questions unless I feel I have a substantial improved answer to what's already there.
- Is this common, or did I happen upon an extremely rare case?
- Is it ok? Should the community feel robbed of possibly good, but unnoticed (maybe late) answers? Is it gaming of some kind?
- Why or why not?
* I may have that I can't remember, so if you have 10k, don't jump on me. I even left a -1 post because I reviewed the answer after downvotes and felt like I still believed in my answer.
