Are you suggesting that Apple II questions should have both [apple] and [appleii]? That seems redundant. I'm not sure a generic [apple] tag is useful. — fadden 6 mins ago

Q: What should the system be deleting automatically that it already isn't?

Shog9So this question got me thinking... We have several automatic processes in place for cleaning up cruft, deleting questions that are very unlikely to help anyone else. They're fairly conservative though; an awful lot of lousy questions hang around much longer, occasionally cropping up to annoy fo...

July 2014
Although H&I & Triage were actually implemented. Maybe the questions need [status-completed] added.
 
My proposal for what we should be deleting: typo questions. (The close reason even says "unlikely to help future readers".) But I don't want to pile on the backlog before the other, probably more impactful, proposals are considered.

Q: Allow users to optionally filter out low-quality questions

David FullertonLots of people are talking about this, so time to throw my hat in the ring. Note that this is just my idea and hasn't really been vetted by other Stack Exchange employees (probably some of them will chime in here). Background: of "rep addicts" and "help vampires" See this answer to "Why is Stac...

> Why not just get rid of all the low-quality posts entirely?

Because, like it or not, many users enjoy answering these questions, and there's no reason to stop them from doing so. Yes, maybe they are doing it just to earn some quick rep, but they are still helping at least one person and quite possibly the Internet at large.
Those two statements don't seem to go together. A low quality question cannot help the internet at large (it's low quality, so you can't understand it! :P).
@JeffreyBosboom Yeah, I'd like that too.
Dare I ask Shog for a status update on his roomba proposal?
 
user315433
Some consider "how do I write a script to do this thing" a low quality question.
 
user315433
But when a good answer is given, it's actually helpful to those looking for such things.
 
@Marshmallow Depends upon the "thing". :P
If it's "write me a CMS", that's obviously low quality. But low effort & narrowly scoped questions are actually probably okay.

so that rm -rf hoax question has "been deleted"

Apparently there's some misconception as to what deletion and post locking means
 
There's also a lot of argument about whether the user should've been deleted (hint: if the account was deleted, the user could just recreate their SF account).
So basically there's no point to nuking a user like that...

user202362
In software, a stack buffer overflow or stack buffer overrun occurs when a program writes to a memory address on the program's call stack outside of the intended data structure, which is usually a fixed-length buffer. Stack buffer overflow bugs are caused when a program writes more data to a buffer located on the stack than what is actually allocated for that buffer. This almost always results in corruption of adjacent data on the stack, and in cases where the overflow was triggered by mistake, will often cause the program to crash or operate incorrectly. Stack buffer overflow is a type of the...

A really elegant solution for that is:
1. When clicking the message, store the current location.
2. When clicking "Ask Question" in MSE, check the location from step #1. If not empty and not in MSE, redirect user back there.

@ShadowWizard Doesn't sound terribly elegant, actually. Sounds messy
You're pretty much stuck with query params or with actually storing something in the DB
