Watching Stack Overflow over the past few days I see questions often being closed rather overzealously. There are definitely some questions that deserve to be closed (e.g. "Do my homework", etc) but it's a shame that other questions get closed despite being marked as community wiki; e.g.
My view is that this type of slightly off-topic-but-still-interesting question enriches the SO community (you only have to view the number of people who responded to this), and I wondered what other people thought?
Also, have people noticed a change in attitudes towards closing questions? For example, I see that no one has closed this SO "classic": http://stackoverflow.com/questions/84556/whats-your-favorite-programmer-cartoon.
