I recently answered the question What's the difference between a jelly, a pudding, and other oozes? by saying that there is no answer to discover. However, my answer was deleted. That's fine in and of itself, but I'm curious as to why.
The only reason I could find in the comments was a claim that it doesn't answer the question. This puzzles me. I mean, I admit it's not the best answer I've ever written; it could do with some more sources to back it up, and I can imagine it being disappointing to someone hoping for a clearly-detailed taxonomy of puddings. But the question was "What's the difference between a jelly, an ooze, and a pudding," and the answer was "there isn't any clearly defined taxonomy so the names are just arbitrary." That seemed to answer to the question, to me.
I was evidently wrong about that, but I don't understand how I was wrong. What have I misunderstood?
