I posted this question, and it got 5 downvotes and a string of snarky negative comments. I am trying to delete it, but the system is preventing me from doing so on account of someone having already posted an answer to it, so I shouldn't be ruining their time and efforts.
The thing is, the person who answered is one of the people who left a negative comment, so he himself thinks the question isn't good for the community. If someone deems a question stupid or bad, then what would that put any effort into answering it? The fact that found it worth answering means that to some extent its a legitimate question.
Given that, I think I should be able to delete it. All the downvotes and negative comments presumably mean that it isn't helpful or informative - so I would rather just delete it.
Can someone help me with this?
