I sometimes ask or try to rescue questions that are marginal given the rules here but when they get downvoted or closed for good reason I just accept the result. But I recently asked one that doesn't seem problematic by any of the normal standards.
It has attracted a lot of critical comment arguing that it is off topic or unanswerable and it has several close votes. I'm struggling to see why. I don't mind people not liking the question and downvoting it, but voting to close it seems a little much.
It may be that I am simply too close to the subject matter and not objective. So I would like to ask for some help from those who are not engaged on this topic. Is the question unclear, too vague, to be a good question? Is it asking for opinion not evidence? Should we close questions because some people think they are too hard to answer?
If the question could be usefully reworded to avoid the criticisms, please suggest some ideas. I think it is asking a focussed question on a topic where evidence is potentially available. It looks to me like a well formed question on a significant topic. Am I wrong?
