I don't want to post details here, but I can't find any other way of reporting this. I posted a perfectly reasonable support question on StackOverflow, which was responded to in a patronizing and totally unhelpful way. When I objected, I found the comment thread deleted and a "-1" rating given to my question. A very poor substitute for actual support.

    Hi,
    sorry to hear this. Do you know if the person who answered is part of the phpMyAdmin team?

      I don't know who's on the team, but I believe the user name was
      "Dagon".  

      I don't know if there's any way to "undelete" the comment thread, but
      I'd be more than happy to have you read it and judge for yourself. 
      Meanwhile, if you happen to know the answer to my question, it's
      here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/21367701/can-a-phpmyadmin-data-entry-form-enter-data-in-linked-tables

        "Dagon" username is not related to our team. I have no access to undelete a comment. I replied in Stackoverflow to your question.

        By the way, even in mailing lists or forums, you'll always find a rude person.
