Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

If a user keeps deleting the code from their question after receiving an answer (thus making the answer meaningless), what should we do? Rollback the edit (what if the user just deletes the code again)? Delete the question?

More examples (same user): #1, #2 (see also edit histories).

We've been getting a few of those in matlab recently. Here's another recent example from a different user. – Lorem Ipsum Oct 7 '11 at 4:20
@yoda: I think it's the same user - at least the code is the same. – Jonas Oct 7 '11 at 4:21
aha! Yes, definitely him. – Lorem Ipsum Oct 7 '11 at 4:25
I'm not even sure why somone would do this. – Jay Riggs Oct 7 '11 at 4:25
Lol, probably someone cheating on homework who's paranoid about getting caught. – Matthew Read Oct 7 '11 at 4:35

Rollback the edit. If the user deletes the code again, flag for a moderator and they can lock the question if neccessary.
