I was wondering about the following question: https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/58253/new-branches-of-math . IMO this question is extremely soft, and if someone has a good answer I doubt they will post it. I also do not understand why the comment, posted as an answer, got so many downvotes. It jokingly shows why the question is not good.

I tried to comment on this answer, but stackexchange did not allow me too. Why is this?

    $\begingroup$ It is called a "race condition". The answer was deleted between when you opened the page and saw it, and when you tried to add a comment. $\endgroup$ – Willie Wong Aug 19 '11 at 16:06
