Why are there inconsistencies with closed question?
This question, The Matrix, taking both red and blue pills? is clearly what people would regard as a speculative question as there is no possible way of knowing what would happen, hence the speculation.
Following the link in this notification (https://scifi.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic) you are pointed to another link here:
In an answer it points to link on:
Again in this Meta question Questions that provide speculative answers…
These are forum-style speculation questions, and should be closed.
So why are some questions allowed to stay open and others are not? This is not an isolated occurrence and these kinds of inconsistencies are rampant here.
It seems that by and large, if the group collective likes the question regardless if it is a speculative one, no one will close it. How does that work? And why is it allowed?
Personally I think speculative questions should be allowed, but that is not what I am here asking today.
