I wanted to start a poll wiki question so that people could vote on what they think the most useful Git aliases are. This is something immensely useful for Git newbies, and similar questions on other topics are notoriously popular.
So I started this question on Programmers (I first wanted to post it on SO, but I figured it would get shut down immediately by the subjective police): https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/40153/poll-what-is-your-most-useful-git-alias
And it got shutdown immediately by a mod. Before even 1 vote to close...
So my question is this: Is there really zero room these days for such poll questions on any SE programming site?
How did we get to a situation where questions that are similar to the most popular SO questions of all times don't even get a chance to stand the test of the community?
Shouldn't wiki poll questions that are clearly tagged as such and aren't intended to score rep but just to create a very useful place to learn trick of a certain area be left for the community to decide on by votes?
