Discussion in comments on this question have raised an interesting point:
Our community seems to be fairly evenly split on how we should handle "are there any" questions.
Yet the question was closed.
I am fairly strongly on the side of it being closed, for reasons I mentioned in that comment thread, as well as in various meta discussions we've had regarding list questions. However, in this case I am wondering if closure is appropriate considering that a significant number of users obviously disagree with me.
What is our policy for closure in such cases? Is there a reason to close despite an apparently split community, or should we err on the side of caution and leave such questions open until the community can come to an actual consensus on policy?
