Recently, a question and my answer to it has been deleted because the user asking the question had their account deleted and the post received a negative score. While the question had some flaws, I really liked my answer and wish to preserve it (and therefore the question as well!).
For my deleted answer, I could simply copy the source by editing. But for the deleted question, the edit and revision history options don't work. (I can still see the HTML output via recently deleted questions, though.)
Is there some way I can retrieve the question Markdown source? (Preferably within my privilege range; the question concerns CS.SE)
If I'm personally unable to do this, would a mod or privileged user be able to do this if I asked?
