I was reading this question and answer this morning and I noticed it disappeared now and I get an error page with "removed for reasons of moderation"

What happened to the question and why?

I recall it having 6K views and some activity today (A friend of mine wrote a popular answer there and he pinged me surprised that it got attention).


I've fixed this.

The question was originally migrated here from Stack Overflow in November 2011. It was closed today (3 September 2014) by 5 members of the community as being "primarily opinion based", which I agree with. However, when I was cleaning up other rejected migrations that were not adding value, I got over-zealous and accidentally deleted this one too.

I undeleted the post, cleared the migration history (to make it seem like it was always a Programmers question), and reclosed for the reason that the community elected to close it as.

From now, the community can vote to reopen (with 5 votes, as normal) or delete normally. Answers and the question body can be edited and commented on.

    Thanks for the clarification and for the undelete - both are appreciated. I also understand (and agree) that it's opinion based in 2014 standards. – Benjamin Gruenbaum Sep 3 '14 at 20:22
  • Oh - by the way, the reason I got to it in the first place is being told it got a lot of attention today: Given that diamond mods have access to analytics data - any change of learning where the traffic came from? – Benjamin Gruenbaum Sep 3 '14 at 20:24

    @BenjaminGruenbaum We can't reveal any of the analytics data. It probably got posted on a high-volume blog or link sharing site. – Thomas Owens Sep 3 '14 at 20:25

    Fair enough, didn't think the referral link would be confidential. Thanks anyway. – Benjamin Gruenbaum Sep 3 '14 at 20:28
  • @BenjaminGruenbaum Other than super secret, mod analytics are also pretty useless. We don't have any info for individual posts (related feature request: meta.stackexchange.com/q/77138/162704). – yannis Sep 4 '14 at 8:25
