I started to answer this, and completely missed that it was the question not the answer that was deleted. I didn't see any indication why the answer would have been removed - no flags, not votes to delete. So I undeleted your answer.
Then I re-read the question you asked here and realized you are asking about the question itself. That stuck your answer in a weird state because the question was deleted but the answer was not. I've fixed that by re-deleting your answer.
Now that I've cleaned up the mess I unintentionally made, I'll leave the question to Art and I'll bow out. Sorry for the undelete, redelete.
I suspect the reason it was closed/deleted though was because it is a very broad question.
