I'm new here (the 100 rep is due to my other account(s) on SE), though I'm not new to SE.
Why was my answer (an answer to Why is the misspelling of "its" (possessive) so widespread?) deleted? The main point of my answer is that
its really should have been
it's, something that the asker seems unaware of. As for the numbered questions - should a detailed explained answer be given to each one of them? They seem secondary to the main question. Or is (attempted) humor frowned upon here?
Also, I think that in StackOverflow, deleting an answer (as opposed to downvoting) is usually reserved for spam/offensive language /etc. Is it different here?
(And by the way, the question there was marked as a duplicate of quite a different question. It does not look like a duplicate at all.)
