Please reopen this question: A problem of an infinite number of balls and an urn

I have a nice answer.

(Added (DR): now re-opened. Please note there are ten deleted nonsense answers, which I imagine contributed to why the question was closed.)

  • $\begingroup$ I see that in your post you linked to an answer. My guess would be that you probably wanted to link to the question. (As a side note, I think that (specific-question) would be a reasonable tag here.) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Oct 8 at 3:25

  • $\begingroup$ Can you give us a very brief description of how your answer differs from the existing ones? $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Oct 9 at 3:26

    $\begingroup$ @DavidRoberts I will give a precise answer to a simplified version of the problem and describe how the answer to the original version should differ. $\endgroup$ – Anixx Oct 9 at 3:28
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidRoberts And, by the way, it was closed as a narrow-usable but in fact it deals with the broad problem and paradoxes of supertasks. $\endgroup$ – Anixx Oct 9 at 3:38
  • $\begingroup$ @Anixx mostly it was closed because a troll was repeatedly posting nonsense as "answers" despite it being downvoted and deleted again and again. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Oct 9 at 3:44
  • $\begingroup$ I just cast the last vote to reopen. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Oct 9 at 3:46

    $\begingroup$ I'm sorry to say that I'm not sure it was worth reopening the question for an answer that has quickly gotten a net score of -2, and whose content is...not quite of the same rigour as the other ten answers. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Oct 10 at 10:20
  • $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? Requests for reopen and undelete votes for on-hold, closed, and deleted questions $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Oct 10 at 10:20

    $\begingroup$ I just discovered I could protect questions, so I did so for this one, to avoid more drive-by shenanigans. If this is not needed I'm happy to remove, or have it removed. $\endgroup$ – David Roberts Oct 10 at 10:22
