Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question has hundreds of answers, many of which are probably dupes. I'm actually amazed that it's still alive, considering the "let's close them polls" of the last few months (weeks?). The question fits more in programmers.SE than here, but given their strictness, I don't even know if it will survive there. I personally find it constructive (though so many of the answers are of low quality, without any reason why Guido van Rossum is admired, for example).

So my question is, how come it's still alive?

Constructive to what end other than getting a list of names people fawn over? – random Jan 26 '11 at 21:19
Were the downvotes due to me saying the Question is constructive? – Tshepang Jan 27 '11 at 6:14

Closed and deleted, I am not following how this belongs or is constructive anywhere.

Who is the most popular person in class?

Who cares.

It was deleted by you twice?… – jjnguy Jan 26 '11 at 21:26
@Justin :) I think that is a concurrency bug I clicked delete the exact same time someone else casted a delete vote – waffles Jan 26 '11 at 21:43
...and somehow, you assimilated that delete vote for yourself? I'm using a site run by Borg @waffles?! – Pops Jan 27 '11 at 2:31
