I had a legitimate question that I legitimately needed an answer for, How to 301 private posts rather than 404? , and I put a bounty of 50 points up to get the answer.
The answers given, at the time I answered it myself, didn't work. I only answered it myself after significant experimentation and discussion on IRC #wordpress.
I wish the other answer worked, as I would have loved to have awarded the points to someone who helped me out, but I think I should get my 50 points back since I did do the work.
