LMFAO the true no-bullshit answer that won't get any better is that it all depends.....

Both. Doesn't matter if you don't like it; that is the correct answer.
In fact, in actual clinical settings, we lump them together and call them indels.

I would say a deletion.
An insertion could be edited out or deactivated but a deletion means that section of genetic information is gone for good.

Will your recipe become more worse if letters are inserted or when some are deleted?
It will be more destructive if it causes a gene to become destructive, or if you don't have spare copies of the gene

It depends on which gene is being affected. Some genes are less resistant to mutation than others. For example, the Hox genes are very important in development, and mutations can be deleterious. The genes that code for serum albumin, OTOH, are not as prone to damage due to mutation and albumin has no known function.

The only answer that can be given is the one you reject. Genetics is not a right and wrong matter.

There is no way to give a definite answer because your question is not specific. It truly does depend on what you are talking about.
