What are the consequences if my dog eats a hot dog? Was closed earlier today because it "was nothing more than a farce".
While the question was written in a humorous fashion (because it's April Fool's day which is also why my comments look so ugly), the core question is still answerable. Not only that, it's a good question that I was going to answer.
In short, hot dogs are commonly used as dog treats in training, but there are things you should watch out for when using hot dogs. The most common being sodium content.
It's not just me that's wondering this, as others in chat have asked why it was closed. Example:
Which brings up the other problem. There are other April Fool's posts, one of which isn't even answerable because it's about unicorns.
I think what makes this so bad, is that we can't even do anything about it, because mod deletions cannot be voted against. Not even if the post is edited after being closed.
I was trying to find out a reason why we can't vote to re-open Mod-Deleted questions, and all I could find were arguments on whether or not Mods had too much power. I'm not really interested in that as that's an issue with how the site was made (Though it keeps us as a community from improving the question). I just want to know why that question was closed instead of the obviously fake one, and why not let us decide if we want to close it or not. Note: There are close votes on the unicorn question, but there were none on the hot dog question.
TL;DR: Unicorn questions are good, hot dog questions are bad?
