I think that amon's answer pretty much covers it, but as the moderator who deleted it, I wanted to walk through my process. The answer was brought to the attention of the mod team by flags. At least one user thought that the post needed moderator intervention to address concerns that the community members could not handle on their own. In response to the ...

First of all, the question itself would be considered off topic under current rules. It is a detailed legal question about the AGPLv3 and not about really about software engineering. The question should be closed. Nevertheless, your answer addresses this legal topic. It presents a valid opinion. It however fails to clarify what the commonly accepted ...

Because it was essentially a link only answer where the actual answer is behind a paywall. (and where the person following it also has to wait on shipping and handling) That is not conductive to a Q&A.

Always quote the most relevant part of an important ...

I'm guessing that's the one you are looking for, here's the link to the question: How to indicate that a class might implement an interface?. As ChrisF already mentioned, ...

You can always see your deleted answers (regardless of your reputation) when viewing the question. So as long as you have (or can find) a link to the question you can then find the the link to the answer. Of course, only moderators or 10K+ users will be able to see your answer, so it would be best to include the text of the answer in your Meta question.

It looks like it was deleted by a moderator because it did not meet the quality standards we have for answers on this site. Short one sentence answers really fail to capture a full explanation needed, even if the OP is asking a painfully simple question. Here is a link with some helpful information on how to write better answers. https://...
