I asked a question on SuperUser. It was based on an incorrect assumption. (I thought that Excel is treating empty cells as having zero value when computing a maximum, making the maximum zero. I asked how to prevent this. Later, I found out that Excel is actually not doing this, so no need for a workaround at all.)
As I found out that the question makes no sense, I want to delete it. But someone answered. It wouldn't have been a solution, but to reward his effort, I accepted his answer. Now I don't want to delete the question if this means that he will lose his reputation from the accept. So what will happen if I delete?
