I'm borrowing David Mulder's comment to the question here, because it adds useful context to the question:
What I fear is that it will just create a positive feedback circle where more and more questions like those will be asked, as they are/can be fun to read and thus get upvoted and even make it to the hot questions list. A question like the linked one should never ever have been allowed to get 14 upvotes. It's both too broad and too localized, yet a large number of users (1470 views) now will think it's a good question to ask.
First off, note that Stack Exchange actually removed the "too localized" close reason two years ago now. There is a fairly explicit message here: a question being "too localized", as defined by that close reason, is not in and of itself reason enough for closing it. There needs to be something else wrong with it as well. See Closing changes: on hold, unclear, too broad, opinion-based, off-topic reasons, bye-bye to Too Localized, point 5(A) in the question, on Meta Stack Exchange for the relevant announcement.
Second, you also say that you feel the question is "too broad". I have not read through it, but the fact that it currently has four "too broad" close votes out of the five needed for closing, definitely indicates that the community agrees with this assessment. That is a different issue, however. "Too broad" is absolutely a reason to vote to close a question.
Up/down voting is on an axis different from close/reopen (and to some extent also delete/undelete) votes. Note that the canonical upvote/downvote reasons focus on research effort, usefulness and clarity. This is, to a large extent, orthogonal to close-voting which is mainly based on topicality and answerability. Someone who votes up is unlikely to also vote to close, say, but a downvote is decidedly not the same thing as a close vote. People who vote up or down also don't need to explain to anyone why they vote the way they vote, and are not held accountable (note that even diamond moderators cannot see who voted how for a given question). It is therefore possible to have a question that receives high votes, yet is off-topic. In this regard, the Hot Network Questions list is a blessing in disguise; it brings in lots of traffic, but lots of people who follow those links tend to not be very familiar with the specific site's scope and standards.
Closing a question as "too localized" never really told the poster what needed to be done to fix the question. Hence it was not actionable which (yes, I agree with this) made it a poor reason to close a question. A good reason would tell the poster what to do to fix what is wrong (and comments could be used to add further details if needed).
In an ideal world, a question that would when that close reason existed have fallen into the "too localized" bucket would these days receive poor votes for its lack of general usefulness, but assuming it is otherwise on-topic and answerable would remain open, and may or may not be answered depending on the specific situation. If the question is too broad, unclear, not on-topic for the site, etc., then it would get closed as such. The latter is something that can either be fixed, or the question can be a candidate for migrating to a more suitable site in the network.
