There was this very fine answer by @Jobermark justifying and explaining intuitionism.
I think it was this one: https://philosophy.stackexchange.com/q/64039/37256
though I'm not sure since the question seems deleted. I wanted to refer it here

  1. Can someone with the reputation confirm this?
  2. If so how may we restore this answer?

It seems you are referring to this answer. It was deleted by jobermark himself, seemingly after a comment by the question owner implied that it was not exactly what he was looking for.

Thus, since the owner himself deleted the answer, only he can/should decide to undelete his intellectual property.

  • Not quibbling with "should," but re: "can," is it not the case that others (with sufficient reputation) can vote to undelete? Sep 4, 2019 at 17:35

    @NoahSchweber Technically correct, that's why I chose the can/should formulation. We could undelete it, but it should be his decision (we are morally bound by his decision to have his intellectual property deleted) and thus only he can legitimately choose to do so.

  • Oh I entirely agree (and I'm not wild about that option existing), I just wanted to double-check my technical understanding (I know how it works on MSE/MO but wasn't sure it was the same here). Sep 4, 2019 at 19:04
  • @NoahSchweber I believe that if a user deletes their own answer only mods can undelete it. While in general users' wishes to have their answers be deleted should be respected, if a user deletes lots of posts in a rage quit, their posts should all be restored. That's the one exception.

  • @curiousdannii On MSE at least I can vote to undelete, and I'm not a mod. But maybe here it's different? Sep 4, 2019 at 23:47
  • @Noah I think there are different rules based on who deleted the post. If it's the community then the community can undelete. If the user I think only them or a mod. Could be wrong. Sep 5, 2019 at 0:49
  • I've put a comment here philosophy.stackexchange.com/a/65832/37256. Maybe good to wait a bit?
