Recently Borror0 deleted a couple questions (one he has posted and one I had). My question asked whether economic bubbles could be predictedwhether economic bubbles could be predicted, and his was whether the extinction of bees would cause the human race to die off within four yearswhether the extinction of bees would cause the human race to die off within four years.

I don't have issue with whether those questions should have been closed as being non-constructive (I defer to Borror0 to decide that). However, I wonder if deleting them was the proper course since both questions had a number of answers that required significant effort. I was wondering whether it was the proper course to keep the questions around so as to not destroy the efforts of those who had put significant work into their answers.

I'm just posting this just for thought and discussion, because I think this is important and I wouldn't want those who posted answers to our questions to feel their efforts weren't recognized or appreciated.
