I just noticed that in this week's Top Question list, 4 of the 15 Java-tagged questions are closed. Why do we, as a community, consider "top" questions "off-topic"? Put differently, why do the two mechanisms to rate question worth (voting and closing) disagree to blatantly, and which one is right?
Do we not agree on what belongs here? Is closing biased (does reopening not work)?
I find this question a particularly striking example: 21 upvotes, 2 favorites, 7 answers (4 of which have 5+ upvotes), and closed.
