The question How can you tell if a person is a programmer? was deleted a long time ago. However:

  • The first link doesn't work for unregistered users. Doesn't work for me, either. (404 in both cases) – a cat Nov 11 '11 at 23:26
  • The links work for me too, even if I am not a 10k user on SO, nor am I an unregistered user. – kiamlaluno Nov 11 '11 at 23:27
  • @lunboks: Oops. I thought I tested both of them while logged-out. Clairfying. – Jeremy Nov 11 '11 at 23:28
  • @lunboks It is strange; I get a {"up":"270","down":"-17"} as output for the first link. – kiamlaluno Nov 11 '11 at 23:28
  • @kiamlaluno Well, you do have more than 1k reputation. Might be it enforces that, but doesn't check for deleted posts. – a cat Nov 11 '11 at 23:29
  • I'm not sure how much we care here...it introduces a fair amount of code duplication and complexity due to the owner and mods being able to see this content and keeping it in sync with question/show and its specific needs, etc. Given you can see this in the data dump anyway, it's not really doing any harm... – Nick Craver Nov 12 '11 at 2:07

    Adding /ajax-load, from the review page, with which any user can see the see the post body, votes, tags, closers, etc.. – Jeremy Nov 20 '11 at 2:59

All of the above routes except /posts/12345/votes (which would be much more expensive and complex) will check for permission to see the deleted content after the next build.
