I don't know how to title the question. The current one is the best I have come up with.
This is the thread in question. Please see the edit history of
- the question
- my (User Krishnabhadra) answer
And take a note of the timings. This is a what happened.
I replied to the original question asked by OP.
Sometime later a new user (say user X) edited my answer, and added an example code, to demonstrate the question (not my answer). That is NOW my answer contains, what the question should originally had, bit of code. The edit even contains a statement
Sorry should have put the an example first
Then this user X edits my answer again, removed the code he added, and returned it to its original form.
Then OP edited the question, added the same edit to the question. The new edit in the question exactly corresponds to the edit my answer had a few seconds back. Remember OP and User X ae 2 different people (supposedly).
During the time my answer was edited, I asked a comment about it, and User X replied by saying the edit was erroneous.
Well that is a short timeline of edits and confusion. I was really confused when I saw that my answer is edited with some coded that made no sense to me in the context.
I am not sure whether this is the correct place to put this, since this is not a question. Close it if you think it is off topic here. But I think User X and OP is a single person.
