I'm curious why a mod closed this question Time to reconsider the secret ballot methodology? and turned right back around and re-opened it without any edits? The comment was "Not suitable for this site" during that closure.
I'm also curious to know if this is something normal or if any other mods have done this in the past and what reason they too might have done such a thing, or is Phillip the only mod in Politics SE history to do such a thing like this and I'm the only person to experience such treatment with a question asked.
Obviously there was a change of heart for some reason, and moving comments to a chat doesn't seem like a legitimate reason to make a closed question more appropriate for the site.
So why was this done and is such an event by a mod normal or common type of thing?
I also saw a comment stating "Hooray, this question was reopened" in my history but no where in the comments or chat history do I see this comment so it's like the mod at his discretion picked which comments to leave, which to move to chat, and which to make disappear in hopes that that would stay hidden. Is this normal behavior for a mod or is Phillip the only one to do such a thing?
