I noticed today that I had lost some points, because a post title Learning Python 3 from a Python 2 book had been removed. I have no way of finding out why it was removed.

Sounds like a not-constructive question, from that title alone, which would get it closed and deleted. – Oded May 20 '13 at 15:24

That question was closed as Not Constructive by the community and then deleted by the community and a diamond moderator.

The question is a poor fit for Stack Overflow. I'm surprised it hadn't been deleted before now.

The text of the question:

I bought a python 2 book a little while ago, planning to read it in a month. When I bought the book, I didn't know about Python 2.7 vs Python 3. The book is written in python 2.

My question is, can I learn python 3 from this book?

I've looked up the differences between the versions of the language but, since I haven't started learning it, I don't understand what most of them mean. Should I just pay for another book?

Normally I'd comment on the question and tell you why I feel like it's not constructive, but in this case I'll present the actual question asked, without comment:

Should I pay for another book?
