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 would like to add to the discussion on the removal of What Stackoverflow Is Not. I have lots of examples that I think illustrate how feedback on questions have gotten demonstrably worse without this resource, but I find I cannot articulate this point of view without concrete examples that were housed on that page.

Would it be possible for a 10k person to either post the raw text of that question into pastebin, or perhaps email it to me? I understand we don't want people to link to it, and that's not what I'm about. But I feel without being able to even look at it, it prevents us from having a rational discussion on its merits (or lack there of).
