I was just looking at this Coffeescript question.

It initially looked like a very valid question with confusing behavior, but on further examination turned out to be due to a syntax error that wasn't shown in the relevant code segment. Its now sitting out as one of the most recent coffeescript questions, with no answers and no real purpose.

As a member of the community should I flag a question like this to be closed? Encourage the original questioner to delete the question? It doesn't seem to serve much purpose or add much value at this point.
