When going through new answers to old question it's normally pretty easy to tell if an answer has been deleted already or not. A couple of times now I've seen totally blank answers that have already been deleted, but don't look like they have.
It's not a race where the answer has been deleted after the page loaded on my machine, the answer in that screenshot was deleted 4 hours before I took the screenshot, my machine here has an uptime of < 2 hours.
The problem in this instance (and previous instances I've spotted) is the OP has posted something like:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
but without any markup to indicate it as code. This results in an effectively empty body.
Can this be fixed either by:
- Reject the answer entirely at the quality filter level - as it stands it's effectively an empty answer that happens to have a non-zero string length. It would have been better if this example were not posted at all.
- Failing that show that it's been deleted in already in the list of answers somehow.
