It's a pity we don't have the "no longer relevant" close reason here because I would have used it on this question if we did. It won't be clear to most users what happened to that question, so for the record:
- A spam answer containing inappropriate language was posted, and that bumped the question. The answer was locked and deleted and the offending user suspended for a day.
- A months-old answer to the question consisted of Djaian's comment copy-pasted, and it wasn't CW or accepted. I didn't see a point to it staying there and also locked and deleted it.
- The user who asked the question hasn't logged in since asking it, which was months ago, and since the question didn't have an accepted answer and there was no one around to accept it, I closed it to prevent it from being bumped by the Community user in the future.
(Edit:) In addition, the question was a fairly straightforward clarification and it was, after all, answered in the comments, so I didn't see a strong need to keep it open. It would be good to have a discussion about where to draw the line with such questions in the future, though.
