Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

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

Once a question is deleted by community, I can no longer flag it for moderator review.

Can we have this question re-instated? The Edit made it a viable question, but my guess is that it was thrown over the 'offensive' limit from people not 'refreshing' for the edit.

Feature Request: Maybe if someone clicks 'flag', there ought to be a dialog (much like a new answer pops up at the top of the screen) telling them that the question has been edited since they last viewed it?

OK, 'tis back. It was passionate enough to trip my work filtering! (I can side-step...).

I guess there's a s**t-gem badge in the offing for anyone with an answer...

Wow. That guy hates DevExpress. A lot.

Maybe he'll just post the question again. But respectfully. Maybe.

Because Diago is curious, here's the posting. Stop reading now if you get offended by language:

how the f*** should someone get a f***ing row on a f***ing gridcontrol of devexpress it should be simple, just a gridview.Row or gridview.GetRow but helloooo, devexpress makes things difficult, why the f*** should they not let this as the simple way it was. it drives you crazy searching a f***ing way to get a damn row from a gridview. Why?!

p.s: to the devexpress owner: f*** you

Dammit now I am curious. I hate not having enough rep on SO :( – BinaryMisfit Aug 28 '09 at 12:58
@Eric - Thanks and ouch. I am also not crazy bout them but that is scary! – BinaryMisfit Aug 28 '09 at 13:01
Not a problem. Marc has made that public, now, but my word that's a great rant. – Eric Aug 28 '09 at 13:02
Even his name has the reference. Pianful [fc_devexpress?] – BinaryMisfit Aug 28 '09 at 13:09
what? no 'Hi' and 'Thanks'?!? – akf Aug 28 '09 at 13:22
If you have this version, do you have the edited version of the question? – APerson Feb 20 '13 at 23:24

This question can be ignored utterly and ought to have no bearing on the design of the moderation system.

But, it is still a very rare (and fascinating) case.

While the edited version was no longer offensive, it became so simplistic that it was remained a bad question (and possible dupe).

The OP ought to have included what he had tried, what barriers were experienced and so forth.

But top marks to Gortok for an excellent edit

Wow. What a moral dilemma. While I agree this question is much better written, I don't know if it really deserved to be re-opened after the way the OP phrased it. I mean, I know that some words may slip sometimes from some lips, but that was just incredible.

It would help if the moderators could delete the original revision. – George Stocker Aug 28 '09 at 13:15
Maybe it should be wiki-fied so the OP doesn't gain any rep? – Rob Allen Aug 28 '09 at 13:18
@Rob: If you wikify the question, the answers don't gain rep either, unfortunately. – Bill the Lizard Aug 28 '09 at 13:37
Everybody loses. – Sampson Aug 28 '09 at 14:50
Wiki isn't supposed to be used to take away (or bow out from) the rep process. Wiki questions are supposed to support a specific type of question in the system. I keep seeing users set their answers to wiki because they probably feel their answer would be voted down. Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it? – Robert Cartaino Aug 28 '09 at 16:05

Personally, I'd delete that very first version of the question. There is nothing constructive in that and it still tarnishes the question. Jonathan is spot on...
