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

I understand that the question ended up being deleted, and I understand why. I'm wondering whether the information it contained has been saved or made available elsewhere.

It can be found on StackPrinter:

Anyone is free to host it themselves of course, provided they comply with the CC-Wiki license.

If you want to participate in something similar, Quora offers hoppin' discussion on the topic...

It has indeed been saved across many other sites. Go to your favourite book seller of choice. Powells,, Fox Books, Angus & Robertson, Kinokuniya, etc.

Go to their software development section and sort by popularity or best sellers.

For the complete influence, throw in copies of Alice in Wonderland, Atlas Shrugged and The Art of War.

And that's the entirety of what that collation of reviews was.

Install a userscript to add "+1 Cannot leave the thunderbox without reading this" and "+1 Better than the film adaptation" comments all over the page and you'll very much have the Stack Overflow experience thankyoucomeagain.

Not at all. I would like the original format back, please not the ugly stackprinter one, and I'd like a PDF without the comments. Just the book covers and the actual answers. It was a great question, and stackoverflow has gotten much worse in the years since that question lost acceptability here. – Warren in Toronto Feb 28 '12 at 14:17
There were no actual answers. Just users posting book covers. How that is a constructive list is a strange one – random Feb 28 '12 at 17:20
