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

Not a bug; the linked question was deleted. That is confusing for not 10K users, but it is otherwise working as designed. – Martijn Pieters Sep 24 '12 at 13:24
what if these things can be checked on delete. can be redesigned that way. – Binil Sep 24 '12 at 13:25
It isn't even a duplicate. The question is asking about the performance difference. The deleted duplicate is about coding-style. – Mysticial Sep 24 '12 at 13:26
What if we want to reopen that question? You can raise that here on Meta. We can also edit the link to no longer point to a 404, vote to delete the question, or link it to a different dupe. In any case, this needs community intervention. – Martijn Pieters Sep 24 '12 at 13:26
Note - the question is now reopened, to see what was going on you have to go to its Revisions list – Shadow Wizard Sep 24 '12 at 13:31
@binil - They are checked on delete, you get a warning that other posts are linked to the one you vote to delete. – Bo Persson Sep 24 '12 at 16:38
