I went to edit an answer I had made and found my answer was gone. The question was deleted as spam/offensive: My boss is very indirect and conflict-avoidant (in contrast to me). Should I take their answers to requests at face value or read into the 'nuances'?
It also looks like the user has been deleted, but I wouldn't expect user deletion to mark their questions as spam/offensive.
I didn't see anything spammy in there, so I am under the impression enough users flagged it as offensive instead. It is lengthy and might benefit from some whittling down to the meat of the question, but I didn't think it was offensive. Some might see it as a bit of a rant, but I thought rants were generally closed as off topic. I think at least one comment mentioned it might be better off on IPS instead.
Should I have flagged it instead of answering it?
