I just did my
fourth fifth(? stopped counting...) review on an answer to the question
As it stands now, the question has
- a total of
2930 answers, 1718 answers with score <= 3, fivesix of those with zero score and (partly) below, and
- About a third of the answers (
910) are posted by users with <200 reputation.
In light of the recent discussion about what-if type of questions; this question especially caught my eye, as it keeps attracting more and more answers by new users with questionable quality. I do not intend to start the same discussion within this question, but what I do look for is a way to protect this post from more mid-to-low-quality postings, as I feel like the total quality of the question seems to suffer under the increasing amount of answers, and I wonder if we could (should?) do something about it.
It has already been discussed that those questions are somehow off-topic for being idea generation. So, for this specific question, should we close it? Protect it? Not to punish the author of a well-recieved question, but to prevent it from getting heavily overloaded.
