I unfortunately asked a very off-topic question here yesterday.
I requested to move it to the appropriate meta site by flagging for moderator attention, but got no response. Eventually the question was (rightly so) put on-hold as off-topic, and but (naturally) kept accumulating downvotes.
So, what should I do with the question?
Should I preserve it in the off-chance that another user tries to post a similar (off-topic) question here, so he might see it and realize that this is the wrong place for the question?
Or should I put it out of its misery and delete it? (I seem to recall that deleting questions is frowned upon, and penalized by the systems that determine if you are permitted to ask questions in the first place.)
