Someone asked a question on EE.SE:
The asker said it was based on this previous EE.SE question:
You'll notice that one of those has a score of -4, and is closed. The other has a score of 48, and is protected.
At first I thought the positively received question must have been from 5+ years ago (back when the community was more accepting), but it's only 2 days older than the question based on it!
Does one question very much deserve to be praised, while the other shunned?
Are either "on-topic"?
How can we explain the disparity in voting and closing?
