In a comment to this recent answer, a user asked for clarification, and I responded. Oddly, my response bears a timestamp exactly five minutes before that of the incipient comment. The user appears to have been editing the comment while I composed my response. Is this a minor glitch in the matrix or a serious bug that will be exploited by charlatans?
Here is the rough timeline:
- The OP commented on your answer (2015-09-06 02:31:41Z)
- OP deletes the comment (2015-09-06 02:32:47Z)
- You responded to this (now deleted) comment (2015-09-06 02:35:55Z)
- OP writes a new comment (2015-09-06 02:40:55Z)
So, you responded to the first comment when it was deleted and while the OP was writing a new comment.
