I flagged the following question for being Not Constructive and Not a Real Question

Is the claim of liberalism being a psychological disorder accurate?

I even tried to edit the question to make it somewhat salvagable but I am convinced that in its current state that it is completely unanswerable.

My flag was marked 'Helpful' but no action was taken.

Reading the FAQ, I do not understand why such a low quality question and poor claim should remain open?

  • i agree with you. I have asked for the question to be removed, but no action has been taken.

Sorry to confuse you. I did acknowledge your flag, but I disagree that the question is to be closed.

I do not like the question, as a lot of other people (it sits at -8 atm, but was at -3 at the time of the flag, iirc), however it is about a claim and it is worded neutrally.

If on this site we allow questions denying basic science, such as moon-landing denial questions, then I do not think it would be appropriate to close the question on those basis.

That said, the question is answerable. Does Barack Obama qualify as a psychopath as claimed? Yes or no, job done.

The question did not receive any close votes or other flags from the downvoters.

I did not decline your flag because you have less than 3k rep and could not vote to close.

  • @Skliwz Thanks for the information! I wasn't around during the early stages of beta where these things were figured out. I will continue to be "skeptical" where I can get the reputation to vote to close. Thank you. Commented Apr 28, 2012 at 18:21
