An answer to a question, which is locked as historically significant, has a link pointing to a completely unrelated site about drugs:

Docu: http://nubyonrails.com/articles/about-this-blog-beanstalk-messaging-

Notice how it says "nuby" instead of "ruby". Might be an honest typo (domain name that someone eventually squatted).

Should we fix it?

  • rubyonrails.com doesn't seems to respond neither. Maybe github.com/beanstalkd/beanstalkd could be a valid target, but it's light.

    This is the sort of thing you should bring up on the per site Meta.

  • @Makyen I just wanted to point out the fact, that there is an answer (and a highly ranked in search engines too) like that. Isn't this, or rather the SO Meta the place I should be doing it in?

    SO Meta is the place for something which is specific to SO ("please fix this post"). Here, SE Meta, is the appropriate place for questions which affect the whole network. With respect to topicality, there's a special case for system bugs, which can be reported on any Meta site.

It does not seem to be spam to me.

At the time the answer was posted the page existed and was providing the information promised.

Still, as others have said, the link is dead now, so either remove it, or link the archived version.
