I asked a question about installing windows 8 on a smartphone which was closed as a duplicate.
When I rephrased the question and asked for it to be reopened Joe locked the question saying that it would be discussed on the meta site.
When I asked why it was not being discussed someone, presumably joe deleted the question.
Why is a moderator acting in such a fashion, it really is very poor standards. When someone asks an awkward question the repsonse should be to politely answer them, not treat them like a pariah, and throw them out of the system.
