I sent this question about barefoot running to a friend at work - mostly because we've both been transitioning to "five-fingered" type running this past year. (naturally, I also wanted to promote the site)
He wrote an answer suggesting some sort of do-it-yourself kit for making your own barefoot shoes- I didn't get to see it, because he came to me, disappointed that his answer had been deleted. He said that although he linked to the kit site. it wasn't really very commercial; when it was flagged he was told something along the lines that he hadn't written enough of an explanation for why this answer was appropriate (or something like that).
Isn't this being a little harsh? A comment suggested editing, or just editing the answer seems to me a better response. Or more time to fix it? I don't know how fast this all happened; I'm just sorry that he had a poor experience. Especially since his answer, as he explained it to me (in person) seemed appropriate.
Unfortunately, I didn't figure out how I could see the question history in order to see his deleted answer.
