Today I saw a question: Who is more powerful: Voldemort or Grindelwald?[closed] that struck me both in its similarity to a previous question Was Voldemort a Better Wizard than Dumbledore? and in the amount that it got DVd and closed. I can't seem to figure out why the first was almost immediately closed/DVd while the other was not.
From the comments of the first (none of which state that they are providing reasons for DVs), it seems that people were attributing the Shark vs. Gorilla argument against it. I don't believe that the question really fits into that area, as it asks about two people from the same universe, of the same "type", who are explicitly compared within the universe in question.
User Beofett explained in a comment that:
It doesn't matter if the two opponents are from the same universe or not. "Who would beat who in a fight" between two entities who never fought will always rely on speculation for answers, and therefore will almost certainly will not generate quality content.
If that is the case, then I see no reason for the second question to be open. Since it not only is open, but has garnered several up-votes I would refute the "almost certainly will not generate quality content."
Can someone please illuminate this situation for me?
Just to point out, with minor edits either question could be asking the exact same thing as the other (substituting the names of the characters in question).
