A handful of us voted to close this when it was first written. Unfortunately, the way the system works, those votes age away after a while and can't be recast by the same people. I have flagged it and attempted to bring it to the attention of the moderators. I respect your opinion, and I'm glad to have you around, I'm just inviting you to flesh things out a bit when you answer in the negative.
