It's very possible that the "visitor" who responded to your question was a spammer who was smited before you checked your question. 

So you received the notification, but by the time you looked at the question, he'd been sent the spammer-heck!

Not sure I would say normal Peter Mohylsky, Beach Expert but they may have commented and AR caught it as spam and deleted it.

Sorry, but I haven't a clue. Possibly the response was listed as spam?

Define "normal". 

Most likely the comment was from a spammer. 

The ActiveRain powers that be, likely ARMS, nuked it.

You have to be sure to allow comments for outside members. I have had it where they disappear also.

Sounds like ARMS got the spammer before you could read the comment.

Spammers have nothing better to do.  Sounds like it was already identified before you got to that message.
