This question already has an answer here:
I recently posted a question about the usage of
goto in Java. I, now, understand that it was not fit of SO's Q&A and therefore, should have been closed and downvoted to indicate that it was not fit but, is it really necessary for everyone to pile on? I'm fairly certain that the OP would understand that their question is not fit when they recieve 1-2 downvotes plus closure and that to within seconds. But is really necessary for the downvote count to exceed 1-2 or even 3? When it is quite evident that the question is not fit?
Possible Solution (REDACTED)
I would like to propose a possible solution to the problem of downvote piliing when it clear from the amount of downvotes (>=-5) that the question is bad. Why not have the system automatically close and delete the question to avoid further abuse? (Sorry if the feature already exists, I am not aware of it.)
I was not aware before that I could edit my post while the post had been closed, therefore, I will retract my previous solution but do you not think there should be some buffer between closure and deletion or some message or something that tells the OP that they can still improve their post?
The "issue" has been resolved.
