This question is prompted by Are there consequences of publishing software under a free or open source license?
The original version of the question related to the "free as in speech" analogy and asked about consequences (do the consequences of free speech apply to free software, in summary). The question got an answer, and a few users found it interesting enough to upvote.
The question was then closed, while under discussion in chat; the author asked for help editing the question so it could be re-opened. The new, re-opened question bears little resemblance to the original question...
Shouldn't this have led to a new question, instead of editing the existing one?
