I just realized that I lost 105 reputation points - so I looked in my user profile and only found "removed" as the sole explanation. Not "User removed", just "removed"
This is the question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10567404/python-global-list
It says "This question was removed from Stack Overflow for reasons of moderation" and points to the FAQ which offers a number of reasons this could happen. However, this doesn't help me understand what was wrong with the question? Or was there something wrong with what I posted?
I really am surprised no explanation is available (or perhaps I don't know how to find it?), how can anyone learn or draw any useful conclusions from any removals otherwise? Are the users with sufficient reputation points to use the moderator tools the ones who remove a question? Is this voted on or up to a single individual?
I searched on meta and realize there are similar questions to this, I didn't come across one that explained the reasoning about why no information is provided about these removals.
Can anyone offer a reason and/or alternatively a way to find out what happened?
EDIT: Just to clarify this was not my question that was removed, I was someone who answered this question (there was some confusion as some posters assumed I was asking why my question was removed)
