In this question:

Is it OK to run 12-3 cable to a ceiling fan from a switch that's wired with 12-2?

My answer started out:

Either is fine.

Scope out the edit history.

That was eaten (present in editing and edit preview, gone when I saved the answer/edit) at least three times before I put in the verbiage that someone else edited out along with the actual phrase, which, since that phrase was the meat of the answer was not OK; I understand the desire to "Clean things up" but cleaning them up by making the answer completely about peripheral concerns is a bad way to clean them up.

After having it eaten a fourth and fifth time, I found that bolding it made it stay. But it's definitely odd behavior - no funky control characters or anything else that should make the editor think I was issuing computer commands.
