In response to a question about how to deal with chess addiction (Rid of Addiction), two sensible and quite original replies by newcomer Abhinav Atul were successively deleted by moderators. The second time, the first half of the answer was randomly posted as a comment, losing the second half of the answer. Apart from the fact that the deletion of the answer was completely inappropriate, the casual truncating of half the answer was thoughtless and insulting.
I would like the longer answer by Abhinav Atul to be restored please and an apology issued for the posting of a truncated comment. The comment could easily have been rendered articulate by editing out the first part of the answer. This mentioned politely the deletion of the first comment, but which was not necessary to comprehend the sense of Abhinav Atul's idea.
The second question is why be so heavy-handed as to delete these replies rather than simply hiding or voting for their dismissal? One reason why these exist is to minimize the impact of moderatorial error, as unfortunately happened here.
Thank you for your time.
