…someone deletes a post just as you finish answering it?

Meaning of "Rooting your device"



  • Yeah...But what can we do about it? Life is cruel.

  • Not a lot, & I don't imagine my non-question would attract much in the way of upvotes, but I just wanted a little quiet rant ;) apologies… though I shan't delete it until it has some great answers :P Commented May 5, 2015 at 19:03

    Wait! I wanna VTC! This question isn't about the site policies that govern the blah blah blah! XD

  • Ah, but on the serious side of the field, I have seen some constructive rants that point to some under-the-skin annoying behavior. Big example is meta.physics.stackexchange.com/questions/6303/…

  • That is a beautiful rant, rightly righteous… & just as meaningless as mine in the overall scheme of things; we will not change the world ;-) Commented May 5, 2015 at 19:12

    It's okay, we can vote to undelete.

  • & I see it's back… which now makes this the most pointless rant of all time, I guess. I'll leave it to gather dust on the shelves of posterity, with fading copies of the Times & a collection of old yoghurt pots that may come in handy some day... Commented May 6, 2015 at 6:34

    @Tet - Pointless? I don't think so. It probably would not have gotten the needed undelete votes had you not brought this to the community's attention.
