OK, this does it. This site is officially painful to participate in, thank to blatant moderator abuse.
This question: What was this SciFi story?
Was first closed, including a mod vote, despite the active meta discussion of the question itself, and more importantly a prior meta community consensus that such questions are ON topic (specifically, asking a question to which the asker obviously knows the answer).
NOTE: of 4 closers, at least one (Keith) openly admitted on meta discussion that he was not aware that as per established prior rules on meta the question was NOT off-topic based on the sole reason for him to have closed. Even before I gave him the proof on meta he updated in a comment "That being said, I think it's fine to keep, and even keep open"
Moreover, with the current meta discussion clearly trending in favor of the question, along comes another mod and unilaterally decide to delete the question that shouldn't even have been closed in the first place based on meta.
So far, the meta question itself that is positive of the OP, is voted +8/-2
The accepted answer is +8/-2 and also supportive of the OP
My own answer, obviously supportive of the OP, is +11/-3
The only non-mod answer negative of the OP is +3/-6!
I don't know whom to complain to, but from now on I'm on strike. I refuse to post anything beyond mere minimum needed to achieve my benchmarks. No more spending 1-2 hours researching, polishing and editing perfect great answers. No more spending my time answering questions just to help he askers and improve the site once I hit the cap.
