I added added some comments to this answer.
The author did improve the answer, but then commented that the original wording was supported by other sources.
I replied by saying that listing those sources would be informative.
The author listed the sources in the comments.
I replied by saying that the sources should be in the answer rather than comments. I admit that this was not so cut in dry in the language used. But I was a bit thrown off by how somewhat hyperbolic formulation in the original answer.
What I don't understand is why are my comments are being removed. And I mean the latest comments. The ones which suggest that the links to the sources (listed in the comments) should be incorporated into the answer.
This is the preferred behavior and it is common to ask people not to answer in comments, but rather to add the content to the answers themselves. So what's up?
