A question about how programmer's certs relate to a college degree was asked.
I answered, I got upvoted.
I think it got deleted. It's not showing up in my history at least. That being a mystery kinda sucks.
Anyway, it was a decent question about the value of programming certificates. When asked for more detail, the guy made his question specific to a certain Java cert while leaving the question's title broad. The question was closed as "too local", which is understandable if silly.
Closed is one thing, deleted another. I was negative when it came to certs, and others agreed. I don't think I was overly critical, argumentative, or rude and I tried to offer constructive alternatives.
So what gives? Is there some sort of bias for certs around here?
