You posted the question exclusively to promote a paper that you wrote and solicit reviews. Promoting your paper is no different than promoting your software product or a service. Treating this as spam seems very appropriate.

Testing approaches are an essential part of software engineering and are therefore on topic here on Software Engineering (and probably also on Software Quality Assurance & Testing ). But questions like “is there a name for this practice?” are much more tricky. They are probably not a good fit for the Stack Exchange Q&A format. It is typically better ...

I agree with amon that your question has a great start, but the final sentence Is there a name for this practice? Are there patterns and frameworks to avoid reinventing the wheel? will undoubtly make it prone to be downvoted, closed ("needs more focus") and deleted. Instead, I would usually recommend to describe what you tried by yourself, where ...

Unless the user has enough reputation to see a deleted post, I don't think they will be able to see the response. However, I'm not sure what the current state in logic is around notifications - they may get a notification that you responded if it was processed before the deletion, but I don't know if the notification is revoked after the deletion.

However, users need 5000 reputation to approve suggested edits to tag wikis; much more than the 2000 for regular Q&A posts. Therefore, those edits take much longer to be reviewed, see e.g. this SEDE query for comparison. (Some regular Q&A edits take or seem to ...

See also: Why was my question closed as "Off Topic - Career or Educational Advice?" We're not a good place for getting recommendations for books or ...

This is not the best place for this kind of question. In fact, resource and reference requests are specifically off-topic here. I'm not aware of any good Stack Exchange site to ask these types of questions. The questions best asked here are questions that require human thought, knowledge, and experience. Finding resources or references to read is something ...

The question may not look directly as a duplicate, but when you look into the comments, you see already a suggestion made by Caleth and me how to create objects referencing the "GPU data", assuming the latter follows a "structure of arrays" approach. And that is what this answer to the referenced duplicate was about. I admit, maybe the ...

Notifications for comments posted in a deleted answer/question are shown between the inbox messages only when the comment was posted from a moderator. If the user receives emails for answers to his questions, comments, and chat notifications, he can notice a comment has been posted, if the email is sent before the answer/question has been deleted. Otherwise, ...

I think the reason is that some users have the privilege to vote to close questions under certain conditions ... can vote to delete closed questions within 48 hours of being closed, so long as they score −3 or lower. https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/5222/314511 Would be great if the help center page be more clear about this.
