Why are answers disappearing from Socratic?

Is there someone in Socratic who is appointed to delete bad answers? I mean, I've seen a few answers before that I don't really like, and the next time I check on them, there gone! Why? Thanks.

Answer:

Please see below.

Explanation:

If, by "bad answers" you mean rude, unhelpful or vulgar answers, yes, someone or something at Socratic deletes those.

If you are not a newcomer, on each answer, you'll see "Edit", "Share" and a "More" pulldown.

One of the choices on the more pulldown is "Report Answer"

Someone (or some software) reviews the answer and deletes it if appropriate.
