@Chris I thought of that too; that is a valid close reason. Had it been closed for that reason, I would not have brought it up. My feeling is that if I take a chance on answering a close-worthy question, and it gets closed, that's just the way the cookie crumbles. I might try adding research to the question if I cared. But opinion based? I just don't see it.
Sometimes, when one person votes to close, people then close, clicking the same reason. That makes closings confusing and contradictory.
If a question is close worthy (and this one was, for lack of showing work), we should close. I have no problem with that, none at all. But it should be based on the right reason, applied consistently.
Otherwise meta gets clogged with "Why was my question closed" type-posts.
@WYSIWYG - I am now! :-)
