I cast the final vote to close The Who's Paying for that Development Model.
When I cast it, there were two votes for it being off topic, and two for it being migrated to Programmers SE, this is also what I voted for.

So why was it simply closed as off topic? Is a 3-2 majority not sufficient to get the post migrated? If I had of known my vote would simply get the question closed I would not have voted at all.

Why would you have not voted? –  Rebecca Chernoff Sep 15 '11 at 1:51
    
I was one of the migration votes, but I prefer closed to open in any case. –  dmckee Sep 15 '11 at 1:53
    
@Rebecca - i think it is a perfectly legitimate question, just in the wrong place. I personally didn't want it closed, just migrated. –  slugster Sep 15 '11 at 3:36

Migrations from Stack Overflow require a majority of 4 votes, not 3.
