My question was edited by a moderator, it was a poor edit, and now edits are locked?

I've just reviewed the revision history and the 64 (!) deleted comments (the vast majority of them not constructive or worse), and I don't see anything "hostile" or "rather rude" from moderators. ...

Where did the comments go?

Comments can disappear at a moments notice, you should consider them transient. Anything that does not directly seek to improve the question can be wiped out. I myself don't go seeking comments to ...

Why is this question not showing as protected?

The question has in fact been protected; this happened around about 07:00 UTC on 2019-01-31. There is a network-wide bug which means that the protection status is not shown if (and only if) you do ...

Why are these answers ordered strangely?

Ah, I missed this the first time - when an OP posts a self-answer, answers are sorted by votes even if it's accepted. Notice the OP in that case is actually the same user who wrote the accepted ...

Unfortunately this is something that's being rolled out network wide and as you can see from the answers to the post on main meta you aren't the only one who doesn't like the new layout. Personally, I'...

Possible bug: Upvotes lowers question score

In both users' reputation history, I see an 'unupvote' around the same time, and an 'upvote' around that time as well. That might explain why the score didn't increase, but not why it decreased: Old ...

Reopen request: Does mentioning a company name automatically make a question company-specific?

With a location this would be answerable in my view.. the rules regarding paying out accrued vacation time vary from "they have to pay you by X date" to "they can do whatever they want" but it's not ...

Double THE template issue

No, it's not a bug. "The Workplace" is the name of the site, so "the 'The Workplace' election" is (arguably) technically correct (even if it sounds a little awkward).

The paperclips are on the wrong side

That's the design. It is indeed meant to invoke the idea of paper clips. We will fix this when the paper clips stop you from turning the page to the next one.

My question was edited by a moderator, it was a poor edit, and now edits are locked?

Best to be philosophical about these things, it's a fairly minor issue (to the rest of us I think). I can't see anything worth making a fuss over in how it was handled.
