I completed the closure after I saw votes-to-close accumulating. Two such were for "off-topic", and one, IIRC, was for "not a real question" or else "too localized". While the existing votes-to-close were a factor bringing the question to my attention, below are some concerns I had about it myself.
Per the FAQ section What kind of questions should I not ask here?, I considered:
- there is no actual problem to be solved: “I’m curious if other people feel like I do.”
... i.e. what practical problem is this question trying to get solved? It could be taken instead as initiating a discussion or essay. It is certainly an interesting question, but does it fit this site's Q&A format?
- we are being asked an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ______ happened?”
... i.e. the question under discussion could lead to open-ended speculation. Who here can know what will or won't happen to U.K. banks with the situation in Europe potentially worsening? We value questions that have answers, not leading to prognostication. Is there an answer to this question?
I don't pretend to speak for everybody, though, so if another person has an opinion please do post it in response to this meta question. We value everybody's participation in defining and clarifying what is a good question and what is not. (Notice the "beta" label still at the top of the main site!)
