As much as I understand Stack Overflow is created to help developers. So as far as someone posts a "series" question on Stack Overflow, it's OK to keep it there.. Even if it's kind of vague, you can ask for refinements, edit the question, or ask for more context..
But suddenly now, Stack Overflow users are racing to (vote to) close as many questions as they can.
Eg: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4116904/whats-a-vanilla-object-closed which was closed in less than 23 min though it was refined bit by bit as people "really" willing to answer and help others were asking for more context, but no.. people who are kind of stumbling their way through shouldn't be even allowed to ask questions!! Should they?
UPDATE: My point is: as far as I'm not (clearly) spamming, it's enough "punishment" to be ignored by answerers.. Not having an answer will make me update it to get them more eager to answer. Adding closure to the "punishment" makes it a hell of a job to ask a question. Did you notice how fast it was closed, but yet no one other than me voted for reopen after updating. People like to close, period!! It's not because they care about Stack Overflow getting spammed, they find it funny to shut people off.
And again I'm not talking specifically about this question (It's already answered, thanks to Jon Skeet), I'm feeling this generally all over Stack Overflow. It's become pretty common :)
