This is the second time I've seen this. The first time a comment exchange followed along the lines of "how did you do that?" A: "bad site scripting I guess".

It seems like this happens when an answer is started when the question is opened, left for a while, and then submitted after it's closed. However it's happening, it's a significant bug that impairs the proper functioning of the site.

• If someone remembers the other answer where this happened and could dig up the link, that'd be great. I think it was Brian asking how it happened; I don't remember whose answer it was or which of the recently-held questions it was. – SevenSidedDie Jul 30 '14 at 5:03
• The other answer was this answer on this question, by a different user. Timeline: question closed 0:07, answer posted 0:34, deleted by Brian at 0:41, comment by Brian about being surprised at this even happening now gone. – doppelgreener Jul 30 '14 at 5:39
