Subject Re: Resetting a counter in CQL
Date Sun, 02 Mar 2014 17:41:28 GMT
Thanks everyone for the responses!

I observed today also some issues if I tried to delete a counter and then
increment it again.  I expected incrementing a deleted counter would result
in the same behavior as incrementing an uninitialized counter, but the
value was stuck at 'null' after the delete and subsequent increments.

Thanks for clarifying that this is the expected behavior!

Best regards,
Clint
