I've seen plenty of questions with bounties that solicit fast running code, but somehow my question was closed because
It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.
It appears that down-voting an answer from a user with community clout incurs the wraith of other users with some prominence. So much so that a wrong answer was voted up despite probably containing wrong information.
This is probably just unnecessary venting, but what did my question lack that caused it to be closed?
- edit * Thanks for all the great feed-back. The main issues seemed to be that my question was too verbose and restrictive. People didn't want to read the whole thing nor did they appreciate my goal of finding just fast running code.
Also the (wrong) answer referring to using the built-in JS array.sort to sort integers is still being voted up. Very humorous but also sad.
- edit 2 * I was unaware that down-voting someone made you their life long enemy. This topic is as answered as it's going to get. The comments made for an interesting meta discussion.
