Recently a question was asked in a manner which seems somewhat inappropriate to me (independent of the value of the question). Specifically, it seems that:
The OP asked the question and then immediately deleted it.
Two days later, they undeleted it and immediately bountied it.
The reason this seems off to me is that effectively the question sprang into existence pre-bountied - which had the effect of preventing votes to close, if I understand the closure system correctly. Regardless of the details of this particular case (including whether this was actually the OP's intention) this seems like a loophole which could cause annoyance in the future.
My question is:
Is this actually problematic? If so, would it be possible to modify the clock on bounty-setting so that a question has to exist undeleted for two days before being bountiable?
To clarify, I don't see any way this could be abused to gain reputation - the only point I possibly take issue with is the potential for sidestepping close votes.
