5 of the 10 highest voted questions on SO are now closed. Does this statistic concern the SO team that the most popular questions in the minds of the users are also the ones that are unpopular enough in the minds of the admins to get closed?
What does this say about the SO community? Is the SO community really being steered in the right direction by the site and being properly "stroked" for performing the correct behaviors and are they being properly "punished" for performing undesirable behaviors?
Just putting this out there for discussion because it struck me in looking at the top voted questions that if they have such a high close rate, that maybe even putting a "Votes" tab there for people to click on is not as worthwhile as was once originally thought. Maybe it is making it easy for users to perform undesirable behavior, like upvoting questions that don't even belong on the site?
