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

While going through those revisions I saw this:

It did not say the duplicate target which is suspicious by itself so I clicked the link still available in the old revision just to be greeted with... waffles. And not the user.

Any dev can shed some light on the destiny of that poor question? Has Jeff hard deleted it from the database for some reason?

It was probably merged with something else. Back in the day, merges effectively nuked the original post. – Lorem Ipsum Nov 26 '13 at 12:28
@yoda makes sense. Any way to confirm this without dev intervention? – Shadow Wizard Nov 26 '13 at 12:31
This question and Bill's answer should be proof enough, I suppose. It no longer behaves this way, so it's not reproducible. Coming to think of it, this is a duplicate of that. It's your call whether to close it or to delete it :) – Lorem Ipsum Nov 26 '13 at 12:36
@yoda thanks, dunno about duplicate as we're dealing with specific questions and there still might be other explanation. – Shadow Wizard Nov 26 '13 at 12:41
Ah, finally we got the "Migrate to the void" option! – Yannis Nov 26 '13 at 12:41
