User said my answer had helped him, and then deleted the question instead of accepting an answer. Can this question be undeleted?

    @Pekka웃: Is that question really that good? The title let's me assume otherwise...and if there was sarcasm, then I apologize, it's monday morning and I don't have 10k on SO (really need to work on that)... Jun 3, 2013 at 6:52

    It wasn't a great question, but I think the solution based on the symptoms could easily be useful to other visitors.

    The answer (with OP's comment) reads to me to like this is a typo question, @Pekka웃. While I don't like to see a question deleted by the asker right after it's answered, I think this one would end up deleted anyways. It shouldn't have gone this way, but I don't see the point in undeleting, closing, and redeleting.

    @Josh that's a fair point, for some reason I didn't realize that. I retract my comment

Yes, the questions can be undeleted by users with access to 10k-tools.

However, I don't think that the question is beneficial to any future users. As per a quite famous (and much recent) campaign of removing all typo questions from Stack Overflow, I'll quote from random's reply:

A typo is not the same as a logic problem and seeing results turn up for the former when yours is clearly of the latter is indeed a cycle of bother.
