This question - Actually dispute between Windows Forms and WPF? was initially rapidly closed as subjective and argumentative (and rightly so), however I had a go at "objectivising" and "de-argumentavising" the question back into a more reasonable state and it was actually re-opened!

A few hours later however a diamond mod reverted the question back to revision 1 and closed / locked it.

I'm not going to argue with the decision to close the question (I voted to re-open it but I can see why it was closed), but why revert it back to its initial revision?

You didn't really change the question just made it prettier - it was still question of the kind "What’s your favorite __?" which according to the FAQ is not welcome in SO.

It was locked as well because the OP had nasty habit of editing with rants.

Sorry, the only thing that question was good for was gathering flags. Besides being subjective, the same question has been asked and answered several different ways already.

It looks like locking doesn't actually disable flags though, so why not delete it? – Daniel DiPaolo Apr 27 '11 at 15:27
@DanielDiPaolo: If it kept getting more flags, maybe. I dunno. Flag it if you want it deleted. – Won't Apr 27 '11 at 15:34
