I have recently asked what was in hindsight a woefully inadequately researched question.
That badly that had I actually looked at the most obvious place, I could have found the answer quite easily. Instead, I was looking to find it in the less obvious places, like the history of modern electric circuits.
Clearly, the question is unsalvageable and there is nothing that can be done to improve it.
So, what should happen to it? Should it remain on SE EE as an example of a bad question, or would it best be purged and its existence denied?
(Similar circumstance, but not quite the same thing being discussed here)
