comment Looking for a symbol for Southern USA communism
The hammer and sickle was used by southern Communists (see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Southern-Worker-1931-09-19.jpg), so you could just use that.

comment Was Horst Tappert a member of the SS?
I saw that, I was looking for the older question to close yours as a duplicate, and was quite surprised when I found out it was self deleted right after you answered it. Anyway, this isn't a bug, an asker is prevented from deleting their own question only if there's an upvoted answer. Unfortunately, your answer never had a chance of getting an upvote, since the question was deleted almost immediately after you posted it. Glad you took the time to repost it, +1 on both the question and the answer.

comment What is the nature of questions that can be answered by historical sources and methods?
Argh, I wish you haven't posted all these questions and answers in such short time. The vote fraud script that runs daily isn't exceptionally smart, if people don't take care to space out their votes on your posts, the script will reverse them.

comment Did the Greeks win the battle of Salamis because their rowers were “free”?
Although the status of the rowers may have played its part, I don't think it was the more significant factor. The Greeks were fighting for their homes, in a very familiar terrain, while the Persians were fighting thousands of miles away from their homes, in seas they were seeing for the first time. We don't really have a lot of details for the actual battle, but we do know that the Greeks were backing away and only attacked when they had lured the Persians in the more strategically advantageous point of the straits. Thus, familiarity with the terrain would be the more important factor.

comment How tall was George Washington?
Heh, I like Wikipedia's answer: 6 ft 1 1⁄2 in (the average of the heights given by the various sources).

comment What role did the Eastern Roman Empire play in the fall of the Western Roman Empire?
@FelixGoldberg Went a step further, and removed the counterfactual p.s. I think this should now be re-opened, it's on topic and answerable (hopefully).

revised What role did the Eastern Roman Empire play in the fall of the Western Roman Empire?
Removed the counterfactual p.s. As interesting as it may be, it's also (probably) why the question was closed. We prefer questions that can be answered with facts and solid references.
