I was just writing an answer to a quickly-deleted question.

When you are writing an answer to a question that gets closed, your Post Your Answer gets disabled. When you are writing an answer to a question that gets deleted, there is no notification. Only the question gets grayed out and a banner is shown on top of that, but often you don't see that when typing an answer. When you hit Post Your Answer when you are finally done, you get an error message...

I would suggest to also disable the button when a question gets deleted and possibly show a banner to the user so they don't write the full answer before seeing it was useless to write any further.

    Especially infuriating on non-FGITW sites where crafting an answer can take hours. – Mathieu Guindon Jul 13 '17 at 15:40
