The other day, I asked this question about re-tagging closed questions and, judging by the answers, my conclusion isn't that we should re-tag them, but that we should delete most of them.

Here are some interesting links that talk about deleting questions:

When should I vote to delete a question?

The Value of Downvoting, or, How Hacker News Gets It Wrong

This second link says this:

Minor forms of bad behavior encourage worse ones: that a neighborhood with lots of graffiti and broken windows becomes one where robberies occur.

So, should we start deleting or old, closed questions? Or maybe only does who doesn't have answer?

  • Some closed questions will get deleted by the system automatically. So there's that.

  • @NVZ Yes, but what about the upvoted one that are closed with no answers?
