Personally I am not big on 'closing questions' but some, I think deserve that distinction. This morning What can I use instead of amaranto? was posted, along with several 'similar' questions. In the comments under the question OP made this point:
TBH I have no intention of using it anyway - I'm asking the question A) to improve the store of knowledge here on Seasoned Advice and B) to increase my chances of scoring some books :D
If this question were actually "to improve the store of knowledge" then somebody who cares about the answer would ask it.That leaves us with someone asking questions which, by his own admission, he doesn't care about.
Should this question be 'closed as not a real question'? (or even for some other reason?)
