I'm not a fan of seeing questions closed without the usual 5 closing votes, but I understand that sometimes that's necessary. Still, what are the rules around moderators closing questions outright?
For example, this one: Why does Microsoft have such a bad reputation with the people involved in open source? [closed]. Seems like a decent question, the answers are well thought out, and then it's mod-hammered down as "not constructive" with two votes and no explanation. Why?
Edit: I did see this question, but I wanted to raise the issue again with some context. The situations described in the answer there don't seem to apply in this case.
