I'm well aware of the reasons why questions usually get deleted, but now I stumbled over this post and I noticed that it has 4 delete votes on it. So, can someone please explain to me why this post should be deleted?
In general, SO requires some effort be shown in the question asked. Requests for help with code are the norm, but usually when someone asks a generic "How do I do this?" question, it gets flagged.
