(Am I using that word correctly?)

VBox's ticket #13615 describes a long-standing issue.  I first ran into it
3 years ago, which is how I now get emailed every time someone posts to the
ticket.  Over the weekend someone else posted again, because the issue
still exists.  Then minutes ago, I get this email:

Comment (by michael):

All the recent comments and attachments to the ticket, including the one
above my Michael (who I assume is Oracle staff?) have been deleted, leaving
no trace of recent activity on this long-standing ticket.

I don't think what was done is right.  I understand it would be preferable
for the root problem to be fixed, but the truth is this impacts VirtualBox
users, and regardless, deleting peoples comments and attachments to make it
look like an issue is no longer a problem seems wrong.
