My question here was directly prompted by this QA:
I'm not sure if I think this should be closed. On the one hand, I'm fine with the original question. I don't like it but I'm fine with it.
On the other hand, the ensuing discussion in the comments is shaping up to be a flamewar because of the argumentativeness of the person who asked the original question.
Is it appropriate to close (or in my case flag, since I can't close) a question because of it's ensuing discussion?
