So we have a question that's pretty popular today: Are programmers getting lazier and less competent
Which, to me personally, reads very much like a rant and the answers its received have mainly been to challenge the assertions in the question itself.
Normally, it's a question that would be closed as not constructive, but it's got a lot of activity and no close votes.
So is this question constructive? If so, why? If it isn't, what can we do to get the community more animated in helping moderate popular questions that are ultimately poor fits for our site?
