Bad style in Questions & Answers

It happens more and more often. Someone asks a question. You take your time, answer it, even give a code example. Then, instead of closing the question, it is deleted. Under these circumstances, should one continue to take care at all?

    If a question breaks the community guidelines by, for example, being a FAQ, or something that's easily searched, then the question may be deleted by a moderator.

    The responders then don't get a notification - this has been pretty much how it has been since even the previous incarnation. The only alternative to deletion is to the lock the question, but that means we get junk (the question, not the answers!) turning up in the searches.
