The original question (closed as off-topic) was:
Is there a free available public APIs that I can call to get the English dictionary word definitions?
I would like to call it from a web app in python.
I feel that the audit answer, in the worst case, was equally bad as the question itself; actually, it didn't look much different from an earlier answer which received 5 upvotes and was equally informative:
DictService is a fairly popular one.
You can find the asmx here
That said, "question not found" can be seen as a hint that the question has already been removed (i.e. it's probably not a glitch). If you could have seen the question, I have a personal rule that may help you:
If the answer is as bad as the question, vote to close the question instead and either downvote the answer at content value or skip that particular review item.
