Deleted question: How can I show by Induction

The best reason that I can see, is that it got 3 down votes and 0 up votes. Was that the trigger?

The user was deleted. When that happens, their negatively voted questions are deleted, too. There is some debate as to whether this should be done when there are upvoted answers. I will undelete the question since there are upvoted answers.

    $\begingroup$ There is a bounty from the Community user which ends in a day or so, which seems to have been started by the original poster. Is this the way active bounties started by deleted users are generally handled? $\endgroup$
