This question has attracted answers that would make it a good reference for a whole range of related (and not very good) questions. Should we reopen it?
I liked the question, perhaps because I did not agree with what it suggested was the case, but still it was specific enough that it gave me an opportunity for an answer based on references I found interesting. I see no point answering something if I cannot ground the answer on a reference that I find valuable and relevant.
So not only did I up-vote the question early on, but I voted to leave it open and later voted to re-open it when it appeared in those review queues.
These kind of questions keep coming back. By closing them we mainly keep users from continuing to answer them.
But I don't mind answering a similar, but new, question again. Perhaps I can make the answer even better.
