This question appears to be quite popular:

Currently it has over 34K views, making it in top 250 all time (top 150 if we discard closed questions).

As far as I can tell, it managed to attract couple answers of sub-par quality. Can we please do something about these, following guidance provided in related discussion at MSE:

...answers that are strong candidates for deletion:

  • belong to low rep or anon users with no real commitment to the community

  • are provably duplicate, that is, were added well after (30+ mins later) other answers that contained the same exact information

  • are short in length

  • do not explain much of anything

1 Answer 1


I just deleted all answers that were not positive scoring (<= 0). I'm debating historical locking it, but I don't think it meets all the criteria for a historical lock. I do wish that there was a "popular, but we don't need to beat a dead horse" lock or a stronger form of question protection.

  • I reviewed cleaned up question in logged out mode, to hide deleted answers - it looks okay now. Quality of the answers noticeably varies but this mostly feels... organic. Thanks!
