    By the way, that's the worst possible argument you could make to have the question reopened...

    I'm not bothered half as much by all the hidden features questions as I am by all the whining that accompanies them. Whining that they should be closed, whining that they should be reopened, whining that some were closed when others weren't, whining that SO is being destroyed by people who post hidden features questions, whining that SO is being destroyed by people who close hidden features questions; it's getting ridiculous. We should just take a vote on whether or not these questions are OK, and enforce that across the whole site Jul 18, 2010 at 19:47

Because we haven't closed, and persuaded diamonds to lock, all of those yet. We're trying.
