The recent question about the early usage of optics meaning “point of view” has been improperly merged into an older similar question.

Can you please restore the new original question?

    +1 – Agreed: The newer question even had a great accepted answer which is now missing!

  • Technically, the question was not deleted, since anyone (even anonymous users) can see it with the right link, so I edited the question to reflect this.

    @feetwet The writer of the answer (and this question) deleted it himself. User240918, please edit this question to show the reasoning behind your assertion that the merge shouldn't have happened.

  • @user240918: Could you at least undelete your answer? It was very helpful. You can anonymize it if you don't want to own it.
