Deleted a comment but it still shows on my profile

I posted two comments yesterday and deleted one of them. The deleted comment no longer shows up on https://www.duolingo.com/comment/6196088 but it still shows up on https://www.duolingo.com/fairtrade. In fact I was even able to reply to the deleted comment on my profile.

You can delete the comment on your profile also, if you wish. No, I take that back. I was able to delete some comments before, but they were from someone that I had blocked. Maybe that was the difference. I have often checked someone's profile when a post appeared in response to something I wrote and then when I checked was gone. Usually I see why they deleted it and don't bother to respond.


I don't really mind that it's there, but it seems like deleting it once should remove it everywhere right? In any case I want to leave it for now in case Duolingo staff want to see it in order to fix the problem. Thank you for the information regardless.


I think they might leave it on purpose to help them catch people who are trolling.


I believe when things are "deleted" they are really just hidden from regular users and people like mods can still see them. However having them show up in some places and not others does sound like a bug. I'd report it using the Support tab on the left.


This is how it has always worked, so I'd assume duolingo knows about it and has a reason it. You can still report it, but I see no reason you need to keep it on your profile if you have a way to delete it.


Yes, I think this is indeed the intended behavior.
