I posted this question 5 months ago. No one provided an answer and I didnt solve the issue on my own. Since posting it, I had long since forgotten I even asked the question.
Today, someone provided an answer. Unfortunately, it was a very low quality answer, that provided no help so I flagged it.
The real issue is that I no longer work at that company, nor does the person who had the error. So there is no way to test a real solution if one was provided.
Should I make a comment stating this? Just let it be? Whats the best practice in this solution?
