I was trying to post an answer to a question on Stack Overflow but for some reason the frontend (yes, frontend lol) had disabled the button. The button was disabled, so for posting it I had to go to inspect mode and enable the button. I did post the answer haha.

  • If I had to guess, because the question was closed (seeing how your answer was posted 3 minutes after the question was closed)

  • "I did post the answer haha" - You submitted an answer to a question that was deleted. You really should avoid answering questions that are caused by a typo.

The question has been closed while you were writing the answer.

From your answer:

You probably made a typo

That might very well be the case, but that's a reason to flag the question as 'not suitable for the community', not for posting an answer. You're basically guessing at the problem; that's not the purpose of Stack Exchange. What we need is clear questions and good answers. Your efforts are better spent on questions which are clear and useful; there are plenty of them.
