So, there's this chain of comments in Any example of (roughly) independent variables that are dependent at extreme values?:
After the edits the whole exchange became obsolete, and will only confuse future readers.
So I flagged it and explained in the comment the whole chain was obsolete and had already been addressed.
This is completely in line with SE policy, see for example:
Flagging obsolete comment conversations (meta.SE)
Obsolete comments: To flag, or not to flag? (meta.stats.SE)
So why was it declined? Or isn't it appropriate anymore?
