In Best ruby / rails time-savers , the OP says in a comment:
PS: Those interested in this question might want to upvote it so it doesn't get closed.
At first I thought that there's no correlation between whether a question is upvoted and whether it gets closed, but I'm wondering if there's a U-shaped correlation.
Heavily downvoted questions generally should be closed, because there's usually a good reason it got heavily downvoted.
But is being heavily upvoted usually the result of being a polling / subjective / overly broad, and therefore a potential indicator that the question may need to be closed?
