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

This question recently came up in the sharepoint tag. It looked like this showing the queestion has 2 answers:

SharePoint tag showing question

When clicking through to the question it still says there are 2 answers but only 1 is displayed:

Two answers or one

I'm assuming that there were two answers but one was deleted and the previous state has been cached.

This is tolerable on the tagged question page because you can't see the answers. However when the question page shows two different things it doesn't look so good.

Not a bug, David DeAngelo deleted his answer*. Wait for the cache to catch-up with reality.

* Makes sense. It wasn't really an answer.

He also deleted his account... – jjnguy Aug 14 '09 at 15:59
How long does the cache take? – Alex Angas Aug 14 '09 at 16:00
@Alex, dunno. That's a separate question entirely :) – Sampson Aug 14 '09 at 16:01
I'm pretty sure the mods deleted his account. All he'd done was spam. – mmyers Aug 14 '09 at 16:05
@mm, I see, that would makes sense. It isn't easy to get your account deleted in under 35 minutes usually. – jjnguy Aug 14 '09 at 16:08
I can't speak for anyone else, but I flagged the two questions I saw from David DeAngelo and his little dog too. It was his spam that inspired my answer to the "not appropriate stackexchange sites" question. – John Rudy Aug 14 '09 at 16:17
This was actually his second account; his first one was deleted a day or two ago for spamming. – mmyers Aug 14 '09 at 17:33

The answer was deleted and the question list page had not updated itself yet.
