I recently posted an answer to a new question. Shortly thereafter, a moderator deleted my answer and left a helpful comment correctly pointing out that I misinterpreted the question. I wanted to thank the moderator (rumtscho), but there was no way to post further comments on a deleted answer, even if it is your own (which is kinda too bad).
What is the best way to thank a moderator?
P.S. Thanks rumtscho! I did, indeed, initially misunderstand that question!
