Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

What are five things you hate about your favorite language?

The above strikes me as in the zone of things that make more sense there than on SO. There is an attempt to delete it underway, though it will take an awfully large number of deletors.

Please don't migrate.

There are several possible duplicates already on the site including this most obvious one:

What syntax element do you hate most in a programming language you use frequently?

It's also not really the sort of question we want on Programmers' anyway. The Programmers' one was asked back in September when the rules were looser than they are now. It's also CW.

Also it's a really old (like 2008) question. There's no benefit to either the question or Programmers' in having it migrated.

Fair enough. That raises the counter-question: is the 'how many delete votes' algorithm really doing useful work here? – Rosinante Feb 19 '11 at 23:26
@Rosinante - well it depends on your point of view ;) It was designed to protect old, popular but now less welcome questions from deletion. – ChrisF Feb 19 '11 at 23:29
you were? – Rosinante Feb 19 '11 at 23:31
@Do'h. "It was" ;) – ChrisF Feb 19 '11 at 23:32
I figured as much, it was just too tempting of a rimshot. – Rosinante Feb 19 '11 at 23:43
