If a question I have asked turns out to be a dud or a duplicate or for whatever reason should be closed, should I vote to close or just delete it?
In some cases like this question they still do receive quite a bit of attention, so it might be better to leave it up to direct users to a (possible) better solution.
Whereas with some questions that are just terribly formatted, or are poorly researched, or are not suited for this site (theories etc.) What happens then?
Is it better to VtC or just delete it? What happens to closed questions?
