Hey I just saw someone post a question that reminded me of a question I've been wondering. I was just curious since I still haven't been on this site a long time, what dictates when a post gets deleted?
I posted a comment that got deleted for "antagonizing" when it was a complete joke in reference to someone in real life and not even the person who I was talking to on gag... Yet there's a guy who went around on every question being violently aggressive and cursing everyone out being very vulgar but his posts didn't get deleted. I don't get offended easily but his posts really offended me.
Just wondering why joking about a celebrity is worse than telling a bunch of people that they should die and such, totally unprovoked. Do people flag posts on here somehow? How does it work?

The report flag has been pointed out to you and the FAQs for the rules of the site - To be honest I am still not a 100% sure what gets a post deleted, a lot of times I hear of a comment being removed and think that is understandable, other times I hear of a post being removed and I think it was a bit harsh to remove it or something is reported but not removed that I think should have been removed. On the whole I think admin and the mods are doing a good job, the posts I have issues with are probably a very small under 1% of the total comments on here so I inclined to say we should just live with it though never be afraid to contact admin to ask why one of your comments was removed.1

If he was doing that then I doubt his posts would have stayed up for very long. How quickly a post gets deleted depends on who saw it and when it was posted. I've seen posts that were against the site rules that stayed up for days, simply because a mod/admin most probably hadn't seen it yet. If you find a post against the site rules then the best you can do it report it, it will bring it to the attention of an admin faster.1
