I'm looking at a particularly curious case of a question deleted by nine users. (Due to the popularity of the question, the number of delete votes needed was increased.)
I happen to agree with the deletion - I think the question isn't very good or useful. However, I've noticed a stack of other similar questions that haven't received the same amount of delete-vote attention; for example:
- Man shot from inside car - how did the killer escape?
- My wife has died
The question I have is this: what criteria were used to delete the example question, and do they/should they apply to other similar questions?
Like I say, I don't disagree with the deletion; I'm just curious if it should be a more general/commonly-used practice.
