I've seen a number of "off-topic" questions get quickly downvoted and closed due to someone asking about minimum specs or similar issues.
Is Arqade really such a vast community that such questions need to be erased from the site? I understand that asking such questions goes against the spirit of the QA Stack Exchange format and guidelines, but it seems like there's plenty of leeway to allow these questions to linger and be answered without questioners and answerers getting downvoted and losing rep.
I can see how on a community like SO, questions with little relevance or research into them can really bog down the entire site since there's millions of questions to go through. But Arqade isn't exactly the same type of site or users, just wonder why the moderation is so strict.
