I have a question about my Information Security Stack Exchange post: I have been a victim, but of what?
This is the timeline of what happened to my question:
Tuesday, 03:20 PM: I wrote a question on Information Security SE that I thought was squarely on-topic there. (In short, it boiled down to "What kind of malicious activity was I targetted for, based on how the attack was conducted?")
Unfortunately, the site would not let me post the full details at first, saying that my post "looks like spam". Thus, in order to post my question, I considerably shortened it by just outlining the case.
As I was concerned my question was going to be downvoted for lack of clarity/detail, I appended a note to point out that I was not too lazy to summarize more information on the case, but that I was just currently prevented from posting it due to SE's spam filter.
Based on that note, a user helpfully suggested to migrate the post to the meta site while shifting the focus of the question away from the actual information security question toward the meta-topic of the site's spam filter issue.
Tuesday, 04:30 PM: I finally found out that I could still publish the initial version of my question with full details by gradually expanding the question in edits. Now that the full details had been added, the spam filter was not an issue to me anymore, and I consequently removed the respective remark.
IMHO, at this point, my question was fully on-topic for Information Security SE (or wasn't it?).
Wednesday, 10:40 AM: My question was migrated to the Meta site.
Wednesday, 11:24 AM: I flagged my question for moderator attention, indicating that I thought at the time it was migrated to Meta, it shouldn't have been migrated anymore, because it didn't contain any meta-issue anymore.
Wednesday, 06:31 PM: My question was closed for being off-topic on the Meta site.
What can I do now?
- Wait until my flag is treated (will it still be treated, now that the question is closed?) and hope for the question to be migrated back to the main site and reopened?
- Just repost the same question again on the Information Security site?
- Anything else?
(All of this assuming that my original question was on-topic on the main site, but reading the on-topic list it seems spot-on.)
