I had an answer on the List of freely available programming books but it's no longer there. What happened?
I noticed this when I was trying to look up my answer in my account history for reference. After some lengthy searching I found that it was actually deleted.

Here's the content of my answer:
Looking at the FAQ, I'm having trouble seeing which problem it falls under:
commentary on the question or other answers
no, that's not it
asking another, different question
“thanks!” or “me too!” responses
definitely not it
exact duplicates of other answers
I've checked very carefully against the other answers prior to posting it. As far as I know, the answer is not a duplicate. If anything, the answers here, here and here are more guilty of this then mine, however none of them were deemed necessary for deletion.
barely more than a link to an external site
This one might be the closest but again, mine isn't the only answer like that.
not even a partial answer to the actual question
That one doesn't sound right either.
If someone could explain the rationale or if another mod can take a look at this and correct the misunderstanding I would really appreciate it.
