comment Common web app usability gotchas?
@Dan Sorry, I meant to post something useful in addition to the snarky answer. Must have gotten distracted and hit the submit button by mistake. My reasoning is explained on a comment on the question. You can request to have it reopened by posting a message on message on meta or bringing it up in the chat room. (I'm not longer a moderator, so I can't reopen it myself.)
