On the May 17 I wrote a comment under this answer for the Nginx verifying client certs only on a particular location question. I downvoted the answer, and I never downvote an answer without writing a comment explaining why do I did it. In my comment I stated that
- The answer is wrong, not applicable in a real life and I don't understand why was it upvoted so many times;
- Provide a proof from the former nginx lead developer Igor Sysoev that the feature OP asked for cannot be achieved using nginx;
- Suggest to use the second answer if the workaround it suggests is applicable.
Today I wanted to find the link to nginx forum again, open the answer I mentioned earlier and found that my comment was deleted.
May I ask, why is it happened?
