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

Robert Harvey decided to delete this answer of mine, and I have no freaking idea why.

None of the FAQ reasons seem to apply. So some sort of an explanation would be nice, as right now I have no idea what the reason might be.

The answer has been undeleted, however, I would still very much like to find out why it was deleted in the first place?
