For some reason, Community has deleted my question.

As far as I know, Community only deletes questions upon a certain number (6?) of "Spam" and "Offensive" flags. What's so spam-like or offensive about that post? Here's the content for those with less than 10k099 rep and non-mods:

Why isn't there a Heterotic string theory which tensors the fermionic state with the Type II state?

The Heterotic (HO and HE) string is found by tensoring the left movers of the bosonic string theory state and the right movers of the Type II string theory state:


The bosonic state is of course based on the Polyakov Action. Now, what if we had another state (I'll call it the k-heterotic state) which is formed by tensoring the fermionic string theory state and the type II state.


The fermionic string theory state is based on the Dirac Action:

$$S_F=S_{RNS}−S_B$$ Why is this theory not consistent? Whether the bosonic state is chosen or the fermionic state, how does that matter? Is it because the Dirac Action is imaginary (since it has an i outside the integral if one expands out the Dirac matrix fermionic field product)? Does it have anything to do with that?

By the way, I wonder if these flaggers were sockpuppets of each other, because I had suddenly started to get 4 downvotes on the mentioned question since a couple of (20?) days back, which is surprising, because it was initially quite upvoted. So I wonder if the same people had maybe serial flagged this post and gotten it deleted??? Indicating to me some sort of sockpuppetry...

enter image description here

Also, these serial downvotes have occured on some others of my posts, so I hope they don't get deleted too? Or have they already?

Especially strange (and dangerous), because it doesn't turn up in my recent deleted questions either,...

Apparently it was automatically deleted (cf this meta post).

I have undeleted it, and also requested that this particular autodelete functionality be turned off for smaller sites.
