I am prompted by the case of: https://crypto.stackexchange.com/questions/11646/the-earlier-question-hasn-been-taken-back, more relevantly presented by the its edit history.
As originally stated, the question had some small SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) issues, which e-sushi corrected. However, possibly in anger at the fact their question had not been answered, the original author replaced the entire question with a complaint.
It is clear policy that edits must always respect the original author, but what does that entail in this or similar cases? If the edit into a complaint is allowed to stand, the question will almost certainly be closed as not constructive. However, to revert to the previous question (which, whilst outside my understanding, seemed reasonable) must be against the most recently stated wishes of the original poster?
I have submitted a revert in this case, since I cannot see how the original poster is more likely to have their question answered by deleting it (which I assume must be their goal).
