How in hell did this get migrated here instead of being deleted on the spot? – Frédéric Hamidi Jan 8 '13 at 22:18
@FrédéricHamidi Why would it get deleted? It's a naive question, but certainly on-topic for meta. – Adam Lear Jan 8 '13 at 22:19
@AnnaLear Certainly this has been asked before on meta though. – Josh Mein Jan 8 '13 at 22:20
As I'm on the list I would like to add that I did not vote to migrate, even though it is on-topic for meta... please don't kill me :-). – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 8 '13 at 22:21

@Anna, did you read the original, especially the questioner's comments? :) – Frédéric Hamidi Jan 8 '13 at 22:21
@FrédéricHamidi Yep. The question actually is original. The attempt to ask a programming question in comments was amusing. :) – Adam Lear Jan 8 '13 at 22:21
@Anna, okay, I give up :) – Frédéric Hamidi Jan 8 '13 at 22:22
