I noticed that a question (see below) I asked a while back was deleted without a trace or any notification.

I don't have an issue with downvotes and closing. The question is admittedly fairly speculative. However, I don't see the purpose of outright deleting a question like this, since it doesn't contain any offensive content, and may in fact be of interest to some people.

Deleted question:

Is mass/energy a measure of computational capacity?

Obviously computation requires energy, and there are known entropy bounds in relation to this. Here, I am asking if they are the same thing.


Is quantum mechanics a mechanism of computational minimization?

Is computational capacity preserved?

Is gravity a mechanism for clustering of computational capacity?

Is a black hole a computationally closed region, which attract computational capacity, but does not have computational power to transfer any subset of computational capacity outside the closed region?

It was deleted by Community. For more information, see this meta post.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks. The deletion rules seem unnecessarily aggressive. $\endgroup$ – Halfdan Faber Jan 8 '17 at 23:28

    $\begingroup$ @HalfdanFaber Note that those rules are set by Stack Exchange, responding to the requirements of a wide variety of different sites, and this community has no control over them. To learn more about why they're set like that, or to lobby for a change, the best place is Meta Stack Exchange. In particular, please note that all decisions are taken based on the content: it is a judgement of the post and not of you personally. Learn what you can about what questions are (and are not) a good fit for this site, and move on ;-). $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty Jan 9 '17 at 18:37
