I'll be posting a 'What do you think of this deleted post?' once they delete this "for not asking a question"

Hahaha :P Yeah I was fully aware when posting it technically violates that dumb rule, but then it does so only for exactly the same reasons as the sticky which went up a few hours ago.

If they delete it given the current situation, I would personally be surprised. Fundamentally, a question is being asked.

(from one of my other posts)

I have seen in the modlog a bunch of stuff getting deleted that were clearly questions, but because most of these didn't have an actual question mark, they were deleted. Not only is this weapons grade stupidity, as well as a frankly staggering (I would say wilfully ignorant and destructive) misinterpretation of linguistics, it is not universally enforced. If the rule is genuinely that important, replace her with a half page shell script and let's all continue about our business.

Cheers :)

"But question marks drive traffic!" -Shiny, probably.
