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 not closing them we could use them later as a reference for a user with a similar question. By closing them we mainly keep users from continuing to answer them. 

But I don't mind answering a similar question again. Perhaps I can make the answer even better.
