Why was the question https://serverfault.com/questions/354781/how-to-access-setup-of-this-router?noredirect=1 migrated to super user? I mean, doesn’t network equipment belong here?

EDIT: The question was closed as offtopic at superuser, and then somehow deleted. PLEASE do not remove this valuable piece of knowledge!

EDIT 2: Also asked on meta.superuser.

EDIT 3: I have no objection to this being closed, as long as it will not be deleted.

    SF FAQ: "If your question is about … networks [...] and it is not about ... Networking outside the professional workplace". It even says SOHO on the device, and you don't know the model. How much more outside the professional workplace can you get? Commented Jan 29, 2012 at 18:15
  • @DanielBeck I don’t have problem with it being migrated. I have problem with it being migrated, closed, flagged for migration back and then deleted.

    Emailing the staff does nothing but get you ignored unless the problem is one that the moderation staff can't handle. As it happens, SuperUser rejected the migration, so I've reopened it.
