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

I've tried pressing on the question link - and I got only a search result page with no results.

I've tried refreshing the list of questions (general new questions) but still the question is there and the link is broken.

This is the link

It's been deleted and hence is only visible to 10K+ users and moderators – ChrisF May 20 '10 at 15:35

The link isn't broken: the question was recently deleted. The list of questions doesn't update immediately on the deletion of the question, so it can remain around for some time.

Question's still around for people with at least 10k reputation or moderator status.

Thanks, shouldn't clicking the link give me that information? – brickner May 20 '10 at 15:41
The error page states "Occasionally questions or answers may be removed from Stack Overflow for reasons of moderation: spam, off topic, abuse, etcetera.", implying that the question was removed. As to why SO uses an error message to purport an illusion that the content is fully gone... well, I guess it's to keep the deleted-content-viewing capability more of a surprise. – Grace Note May 20 '10 at 15:47
