I posted it on Meta Stack Overflow as well, but in any case: there's a network-wide bug affected all sites' Help Centers. E.g. this link: https://meta.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic shows long-deleted Stack Overflow content only Google can find:

What topics can I ask about here?

a "reticulated spline" is a valid geometrical entity. They're used a lot in terrain modelling. Because you can get non-reticulated splines, someone wiseguy obviously thought it good to start reticulating them.

This should be resolved. Details on this meta.stackoverflow.com post.

    This one is still broken. Maybe it was changed during the bug, it’s some weird case of caching, or one of the Vegetarianism mods is having a joke on us.

  • @Wrzlprmft I made no changes to this page at all from my side. That's weird. :| Only change was made by another mod on Thursday, before the issue.

  • I don't know whether it's related to this bug, but this page appears to be outdated as well. It's very confusing and aggravating for new users (and even fairly seasoned ones it seems) to be looking for reasons why their question/answer was downvoted and how they can be a better member of the community, only to find out that the advice given to them on an official channel for such things was completely wrong! Please fix this!!

A fix is being rolled out as we speak.

I will let Nicks' answer stand by itself:

oh dear
