Can somebody please delete my obscure question about technology nobody uses, and which seems unlikely to lead to anything useful. The existing answer does not even attempt to address the question, it is just a general report on an episode in the poster's life that happens to involve some of the same products.

  • Does it not let you do it yourself? Anyway, I think the question is valuable, even if that answer isn't; are you sure it can't just be left undeleted but unanswered? – wizzwizz4 Jan 24 at 13:11
  • I thought that check was only for positive-score answers. You can delete the question now. – wizzwizz4 Jan 24 at 13:21

Thinking that a question is not valuable is not a valid reason for deletion.

I see no reason for the question to be deleted.

Thank you for your concern regarding the quality of the site as a whole, that is appreciated. However, the general rule is to delete questions only if they are off-topic (or spam of course).

If you wish to delete this particular question, then so be it.

  • Automatic deletion of unanswered questions below a certain score (regardless of whether they were closed or flagged) seems to put a lie to that ‘general rule’. – user3840170 Jan 25 at 13:33
  • Yes, other reasons for deletion do exist. That's why I said 'general', to not overcomplicate the answer. – Chenmunka Jan 25 at 17:45
  • The point is, the question score is supposed to be a proxy for quality. So the value of the question is a consideration as to whether it should stay or not; it’s just that it’s (usually) supposed to be determined by the voters, not the asker. (Though I assume this is meant as protection against perverse incentives, not an inherent disqualification.) – user3840170 Jan 27 at 22:21
