My question* (10k+ link) was deleted by Community♦. Why?

I searched a little and found reasons for deletion like rejected migration or account deletion. But I can't see why my post was deleted.

I don't care about it being undeleted. I just want to know why. And in the process I would find it great if we display a reason when a question gets deleted out of the blue.

* 1 month old, 2 up- and 3 downvotes

  • @shog9: My question is only a month old.

  • @Shog9 wow I wasn't aware it's active here on Meta - it means tons of not-so-popular feature requests are being wiped, I don't think it's right. Oct 26, 2013 at 21:03
  • Meh @ShaWizDowArd, we're usually not a quiet bunch. I don't think that answerless requests are all that common.

    @Bart feature requests usually receive only comments, especially if not so popular, don't think they deserve insta-death like that. Oct 26, 2013 at 22:44

    @Shog9 and what you think? Do all of them really deserve to be deleted? I've seen some cases of negative scored requests being eventually implemented. Good example. Oct 27, 2013 at 8:31
  • Eh; there are some decent ones and a lot of dups, @Sha. Critically, none of them managed to attract any answers (though in some cases an awful lot of comments were generated). There's an argument to be made that a poorly-received proposal is better off removed so that someone else can write a better one - sometimes, the way in which something is suggested does more to bury an idea than the nature of the idea itself.

  • Heh... In your case, that stuff's all gonna change soon anyway - best see how that pans out before suggesting tweaks.
