Where do those comments go?

Anyone else find they are engaged in debate in a comments section of a web page, and suddenly all comments vanish? Today this happened to me when commenting on a John Shore article. All half dozen or more comments disappeared –

I kept refreshing the page. Nup, still 0 comments. I checked again hours later. Still no comments.

The cynic in me suspects thus happens when the owner of the page doesn’t like being challenged. But the optimist in me suspects it’s a technical glitch. On WordPress sites such as Stasis Online, it is easy to delete comments, but it seems dishonest to do so.
