I flagged some comments on this post as too chatty. (Two years into my PhD program, and Mom is dying of cancer. Should I tell my advisor about it?) and it got declined. Why?
The flagged comments were:
Thank you guys.. I decided to tell my advisor. I hope it goes well.
I am reading this from my cancer-having (and ultimately dying--as best, much sooner than we all thought) mother's hospital room. My heart goes out to you, I mostly understand (I did a Ph.D., too, though not during this! I can't quite imagine), and I'm glad you're getting helpful advice. Best to you.
I am reading this and my heart goes out to you. It is, if anything, not fair that I should have survived
I mean his story is sad, thats true. But please may some on explain me in which way a comment like this:"I am reading this and my heart goes out to you. It is, if anything, not fair that I should have survived." takes any relation or content to his question as it is? Or is there a rule over here that just says "If a person had sad happenings in its life its fine to be getting chatty in comments"?
