After a short discussion in comment with 10K+ user, I noticed a fatal flaw in the question, wrote "Thank you" and not before long deleted the question.

Not sure the 10K+ user saw my final comment.

Can 10K+ users see deleted questions and the comments in them?

    $\begingroup$ It seems you do not really ask what you want to know about. Deleted content especially self-deleted questions can be quite hard to find for 10k+ users (to see the question you need its URL, but it is gone from [all] lists as it is [self] deleted...) Depending on circumstqnces a 10k+ user might (with some effort) be able to see the question again after deletion. Regarding notification of comments on then deleted content there is not special-casing of 10k+. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/231668 So if you want to know if a 10k+ will have noticed such a comment the answer is "maybe." $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @quid you appear right. I believe the 10K user would have reloaded the page. $\endgroup$
