I'm here merely to grumble. I just spent half an hour working on a detailed and thoughtful answer to a question, and when I went to submit my answer, I received the notification that the question had been deleted and "no new answers will be accepted." As it happens, the question was brand spanking new, and not a single answer had been posted. The deletion clearly occurred during the time I was working on my answer.
This isn't the first time this has happened to me. I imagine it's essentially inevitable that this will happen sometimes, but it's terribly frustrating, and a waste of time and effort. Aside from being able to submit some sort of "freeze" to keep a question in place while working on an answer (which admittedly seems a bit ridiculous), I can't see any solution, other than to work on answers as rapidly as possible. This does not, however, encourage really high quality answers.
If this is all just pointless carping, I'm willing to be told so. But thanks for listening.
