I recently posted a controversial answer to a question, then spent a few days off site life-tending while things cooled off. When I returned with the intent of seeing how the controversy had been resolved, I was initially unable to find my own post -- it wasn't visible in my own recent answers, and the question appeared to only have 4 answers when viewed from the search page (mine had been the 5th).
On clicking the question I was able to see that my post had garnered 4 upvotes, 15 downvotes, and had been subsequently deleted by moderation staff along with a comment that my answer missed the mark in their opinion. When I went to undelete the answer solely for the purpose of clarifying my position and responding to the comment, I received a notification saying that my post had been deleted by a moderator and couldn't be undeleted, and that I couldn't comment on deleted posts (even to to respond to comments made by a moderator before they manually deleted my post, apparently).
The situation has been resolved wonderfully by the moderation staff as per usual, and I regret the egg on my face as a result of the Orwellian references. Cheers to bastions of knowledge presided over by the best of us!
