Can someone have a look at this question? Some newbie who apparently doesn't understand the idea of abstraction came along and asked a question that, admittedly, is a bit ranty. Several people, including myself, tried to come up with useful answers that would help the asker learn and understand... but several other people closed it.
But then something crazy happened. I went to cast a reopen vote, and there's no reopen link. The Edit link is grayed out, and hovering over it says that the question is locked. But there's no "Locked" message anywhere on the question, nor any evidence that a moderator ever looked at it. (The question was closed by five ordinary users.) Something appears to be very broken here.
Can someone please fix this?
