And close all questions posted prior to the year 2010 that start with the word "Best" as "Not Constructive?" Seems like half the flags I see now are about this. Why not just do it en masse and get it over with?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
I made a quick Data Explorer query for you. This would probably be a good place to start.
Do not close questions just because their title contains the word best. In particular, about half of these are asking for “the best way to do X” and are generally reasonable questions, just formulated in a slightly dodgy way — they should be edited to read “how to do X”.
Some expressions are almost always worth killing on sight, such as “best practice(s)”. But not “best” alone.

Now that a bunch have been closed, the search box works better until the next data dump update:
Same warnings apply (analyze each question to make sure it actually deserves to be closed).
