I posted a question 18 months ago or so on SO, got a couple of votes. The question has been deleted - I can't find it. It's just gone - can't google it either. I see 2 much newer questions by other people, essentially the same question as mine, and they have 50 and 68 votes... I don't care about the voting, it's always going to be unfair to someone, but where the hell did my question go?
Moderators can search deleted questions, so probably flag one of your question for moderator attention, and ask for it?
