Some of you have noticed a bunch of deleted questions on the site lately, and have asked why.
What happened is that there was a voting ring of users running sock puppets to post simple dictionary- and thesaurus-type Q&A they used to unfairly drive up each other’s reputations with. We’ve asked some of these users not to return, while others have been given an extended break from the site.
In cleaning this up, we’ve deleted most of the questions being used to drive it. Our apologies for any deleted answers that got caught by our mopping-up job.
