My logic was that this question had valuable answers, and was quite popular (489 upvotes, 134 stars), but was obviously off topic for SO.
Instead, Andrew Barber came in and nuked the question entirely. In my opinion, this a scenario where even a historical lock would have been better than a nuke, as this is a great aggregation of tools for SO
It is, however, possible that the flag was mis-read, so I'll post a screenshot of it below:
Please, can we have some limit to the nuking of questions that have more than say 100 upvotes? Maybe require two moderators to take action when deletin a question like this, but this type of content should NOT be deleted, even if off topic.
