I made a comment while it was online, but now I am unable to contact the author. My comment does no more show up in my activity, nor is the name of the questions's author mentioned anywhere. This renders me unable to communicate with the author, for which my comment was intended.
Why does my comment get removed too from my activities?
Besides, IMHO, this was a very good question. There should be a way to reactivate or otherwise preserve such good questions in a form the original author could agree.
