It is a good programming question and encouraging for young budding programmers. The fact that they can't ask simple question that can broaden their horizons and point of view is not good for programmers site.
I have seen a trend lately that this was not the only question that was closed as off topic, there were a couple of others which probably were ok questions.

What is in this question that is off topic? I totally disagree.
And by the way there is an absolute answer for this question?
