I recently posted an answer here in the parenting forums on a really touchy subject. There were already a couple answers before I posted, but they were superficial and I felt did not answer what the OP really wanted to know, so I inferred what I felt the OP wanted to know (which turned out to be correct) and submitted.
Throughout the day my post collected down-votes (and a couple up-votes)--which is OK, I suppose I expected that, but I felt the the info was still worth getting out to the OP. Towards the end of the day the OP accepted my answer, which was currently at -2, despite the other answers that collected 8+ up-votes and such.
I see this morning that the answer had collected even more down-votes, and that it was grey (I am not sure what that means, but guessing flagged for deletion?). I really feel that my answer helped ease the OP as they did accept, and would be really good for other people to see who have a similar question with the same inferences that I made. I do not want my post to be deleted just because of a...very passionate side on a very touchy subject. Is there anything to be done?
