I recently viewed a question that was nearly identical to a question I have (requesting AppleScript solutions), and there were at least three helpful responses.
My question is essentially the same--except I need one line added to the previously posted solutions. So I posted a reply, asking if anyone knew how to modify the previous solutions in that small way. But my question was deleted.
How does deleting a subsequent question help anyone? Whom does it benefit? Conversely, how would leaving a question like mine in place hurt anyone?
Like anyone else, I'm just looking for a solution to a problem. I find an existing thread that contains 99% of the solution I seek, and I'm simply seeking the last 1%. But that's not a valid question?
This frankly seems like a ridiculous, illogical system, and I'd like to know in what ways this practice benefits readers or seekers of information.
