The displayed question is:

Hi All: Is there any open source project that can be used to build a on-line ticket sales system, like: ticketmaster or eventbrite etc..? Thanks!

The edit show:

I don't know if I have to post this here or on the global meta.se.

  • That's a weird one. It does look like an edited version appears when you click edit, but there's no edit history. I'll report it in the Moderators chat room. I think the developers watch the bug tag in all meta sites, but if I report it in chat they might see it sooner. – paulmorriss Oct 12 '12 at 9:22
  • Here's the answer I got: @paulmorriss In theory, yes Policy is you can post bug reports for the SE network on child metas as well. – paulmorriss Oct 12 '12 at 9:25
  • @paulmorriss This is just fine here, and it's not a bug (writing an answer now). – user11312 Oct 12 '12 at 9:26

This is , there's a filter that automatically removes silly stuff like "Hi All" from posts. It doesn't catch everything, but it works fairly well.

The question in question however was originally asked on Dec 24 '10, before the filter was implemented, which explains why "Hi All" is still there. When you tried to edit it, the filter run automatically, removing the silly salutation.

  • Oh I see. I've heard about this filter but since I do few edits I always see some "Hi there", "Thanks for help", etc ... I was wondering if this filter still works. As you said it doesn't catch everything. Thanks for the answer – j0k Oct 12 '12 at 9:33
  • @j0k Here's the regex, it's pretty basic really. "Thanks!" survived because it's at the end of the post. – user11312 Oct 12 '12 at 9:43
