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
