I'm a regular user of the Deep Web, which is currently in private beta. We as a community had reached a consensus that a certain kind of question was off-topic on the site and should be migrated, so we closed one such question. Later, a high-rep user on the site commented on the closed question:
The question must be migrated, but I can answer, so reopen it please
Generally, I thought the rule was to not answer closed questions as this sets a bad example for future visitors to the site. I replied
This is something that I've noticed in many of your answers. When you know a question is blatantly off-topic (like this one), please don't reopen it to answer it. This only encourages more off-topic questions. As for this question, I agree with @JohnSmith that this question is more suited to Tor.SE. As such, I've voted to leave this question closed.

I see no problem in answering a question if I know an answer. Yes, the question itself seems to be more fot Tor.SE - but no migration is done AFAIK, and - after all - it's a Question and Answer network, right&
I personally thought that this was not an acceptable course of action to take. Is voting to reopen a question just so you can answer it acceptable? (Also, what should I do in this situation?)
