Hi GUI Junkie. I left that comment, and I didn't vote to close the question. However, I think closing it was the right thing to do. There wasn't a real question there, so who knows what kind of answers you would get. Closing makes sure you don't get any answers. Meanwhile, while closed, there can be comments about the question to decide how to fix it, and people can edit the question to make it better. Once the question is good enough, people can vote to reopen the question (which I'd already done before seeing this meta).
That's how the site is supposed to work. It helps keep the site, questions, and their answers clean. It also lets the community decide what should or shouldn't be allowed here.
By the way, I think your question is likely to get reopened now. Once it does, I would edit it so that the old question is gone and you just have the new, much better question.
One final comment about your question, it's quite OK to break up multiple questions about the same subject across multiple specific questions rather than one general one (in fact, it's encouraged). You've asked for so much in your question, that it's quite unlikely that one person gives the best answer to every aspect of the question. So you could ask one question that is "what's the technique to make a souffle" and another that is "what are the common pitfalls of a souffle and how do I avoid them". That also helps people down the line who are searching for the answer to a specific question. Also consider that if there isn't a definitive answer to a question but rather a collection of valid answers, you should make the question a community wiki (although, I think if you split your questions out, you'd be ok and not need the community wiki).
