I find this whole thing rather sad. I am one of the most active users on the site and I ask a simple question - about skiing - https://sports.stackexchange.com/questions/15498/what-can-one-expect-when-skiing-in-warmer-weather
I did not say there was a race or there wasn't a race. I just asked about what to expect in certain weather conditions. Then I get someone pegging the question with comments and works it into the close queue and eventually gets put on hold.
Seriously WTF is wrong here?
It is about a sport and is a question that will take some background in the area to answer. This is after the mountain of simpleton, I can look it up on wikipedia in 3 seconds get OK'ed by everyone and answered by the mods but a REAL sports question comes in and it is closed.
