Just a little technical matter, if I:

  1. add to an answer of mine a comment sent to another user and then I delete my answer


  1. put the same kind of comment on a deleted answer of mine

do the other user receive the alert and can he/she see my comment?

  • 1) Sometimes I comment on answers of new users that are "not an answer" and, if I recall correctly, I do receive notifications if they comment and the answer is then deleted; 2) Can you comment on an already-deleted post? These are "semi-locked", although you can edit them, but also only by the OP. – Werner Oct 15 '16 at 15:53
  • Thank you @Werner! My curiosity comes from a case of type 1): I had commented an answer of mine and then deleted it. On 2) you are right: comments are disabled on deleted/locked posts (even if they are my own posts), I haven't noted that! – CarLaTeX Oct 15 '16 at 19:24

    Reference: How do notifications on deleted posts work? The link references deletion by a mod, not the OP, so I'm not exactly sure. My guess is one could collaborate with another user and post content to Formatting Sand-Box. – Werner Oct 18 '16 at 2:55

The answer seems to be "yes, but..." based on Can I get more information on an inbox notification for a comment on a deleted answer?. The notification will persist, but you'll only get to see as much of the comment as the inbox shows (until you reach 10k rep).
