Don't know what exactly was in that question, but this happens when a moderator edits something out of the post and the previous revision gets burned (usually when it contains personal information). According to the timeline, the post was created by omg. Jeff must have removed and burned something from the question. I don't really care to investigate it any further because that's a total crap question which will be deleted very shortly.

    I'm so glad to see a response from someone I voted for in the last moderator election.

That question might even be before we had mod powers to burn a specific revision (i.e. it might have been ad hoc altered via sql).

Regardless, the current feature that allows a mod to destroy a revision will ensure the original post owner retains the initial revision, so this won't happen any more.

  • Is that a recent change to the feature? Because this question is pretty recent...
