I've noticed that sometimes heavily-downvoted comments will arbitrarily disappear. Some of them are extremely distasteful, but others just seem to be typical downvote material. And sometimes my child comments get upvotes/downvotes even though I can't see them anymore!

Don't know if it's automated system, manual removal, privacy feature, or something else (maybe even english/russian settings?)

Anyone know why this happens?

Ikr, a humorous comment of mine was removed, while a comment of mine including a HTML "div" element with its height set to 100000px was kept.

    Disable JS seems to stop me from writing comments, is there any way to get a better way to always show comments?

    Seems even some benign "is it rated" comments get hidden. Strange stuff

They are not removed. They are hidden using display: none css if they are too downvoted, but they are still present in blog page html.

    So, expect downvotes = wrap your comment with a div element with the style="display:initial !important" attribute.

It is because the comments have been infected by a computer virus known as Ligma.
