Hidden Features in Delphi related topics (from StackOverflow, until the diamond moderators kill these too)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/20

There are (soon probably “were”) a few very interesting Q&A threads on Stack Overflow in the “Hidden Secrets of” series on Delphi related topics.

I sort of can get (but don’t agree: there is a very good voting system to de-emphasize material that is not useful, but who am I to argue with the minority of “the world is black and white, we just follow the rules” diamondss) that these get closed, but cannot get that very useful material gets deleted for anyone with less than 10-thousand reputation.


@Jeroen & David, I’ve deleted my off-topic comments from here. Could you do the same, please ? I’ve also asked moderators to delete my meta question as it seems the users there are not even humans. Never mind. Stack Overflow is not what it was few years ago as I observe. It’s getting worse. Another piece to this mosaic was running the portuguese version of Stack Overflow ideal for cross posting between the sites.

    I am less excited about SO than in the beginning because of how quick moderators are to close questions. I use it less as well.

    Jeroen, I can see it’s closed – but where it is flagged for deletion? I agree deleting would remove a great resource, but when reading the question page I couldn’t see anything about deleting it.
