That's quite an outrage, why go so far against the grain to inflict your will upon the masses and not even acknowledge why you are doing so?


Give me a break, why wasn't


closed as well?


1 Answer 1


The question (11033) was closed by five non-moderators, reopened by five other non-moderators and then finally closed by two non-moderators and a moderator.

So far 8 non-moderators have voted to close the question. The moderator has only intervened at a late stage. Personally I would have waited until there were 3 or even 4 non-moderator close votes, and I would potentially vote to close even if I personally disagreed with decision.

In this case I'm not sure that either question passes the new constructive subjective test.

    Yeah, well nobody has given a decent reason why one should be left open and the other should be closed. Oct 12, 2010 at 20:45
  • @Peter - I agree with you, but I'm not going to arbitrarily close 2119.

    @Peter - that was before the new constructive subjective policy was introduced - and if the community wants a question closed I'll only help it along, I won't act contrary to their wishes.
