Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This question already has an answer here:

I asked this question, which still doesn't have an answer. It hasn't been edited many times, so it is not a community wiki. However, when I view unanswered questions, it is the #1 unanswered question. But it shows that it is owned by "community" and was edited two days ago, neither of which is the case. What's up with that?

It's not showing that it's owned by Community. It's showing that it was modified last by Community, 2 days ago. That is because 2 days ago users posted two abusive answers to your question which have since been deleted, along with the users who posted them. Since the posts and accounts no longer exist, Community takes the blame for the modification.

Interesting. Can I view said abusive answers, or at least see a record of their existence? Also, some mods did some quick work with that since I never got any sort of notification of an answer! – Eric Feb 24 '14 at 1:40
@Eric Well, one is just a bunch of random letters, and the other is an offensive message I don't think you want to see. – animuson Feb 24 '14 at 1:41
I'll take your word for that :-) – Eric Feb 24 '14 at 1:42
