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

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Check the rev history, the OP drastically changed the question: – Wesley Murch Feb 4 '13 at 2:35

There were a few deleted comments, so the remaining ones didn't really make much sense out of context.

I removed a few more, so it should look more coherent now.

When you come across this, just flag the comments that seem irrelevant for moderator attention and a moderator (or a few more flags from other users like you) will clean them up.

Ok noted, thanks. – ringø Feb 4 '13 at 2:36
@AnnaLear Thanks for making it make sense again, but perhaps there's more to investigate. – AndrewC Feb 4 '13 at 2:52

The seemingly unrelated comments aren't a bug, they're because the OP made a massive edit completely changing the question topic. The perplexing comments related to the previous version.

I suspect the OP did this to circumvent the wait period on offering a bounty - this user has used 4 bounties in their brief 41 day time at SO, which seems a lot, and every time by editing an existing question to be a brand new one immediately before offering the bounty.

It's happened on all four bounty questions:

I'm not too worried about this since the original questions didn't have any answers and weren't all that great. Now we have better questions and some answers on each. This is certainly a bit weird, but I'm not (yet) sure if I'd go as far as to call this an abuse of the edit/bounty mechanics. That said, thanks for digging further! I'll take care of this from here. – Adam Lear Feb 4 '13 at 3:12
