Funny that the first question I asked in 4 months was closed, even though it garnered good responses, a few positive votes and is objectively a good question pertaining only to programmers and the business of programming. I'd think it was the direct influence of a man with no capacity for abstract thinking or imagination for that matter. A true prerequisite for a real programmer.
I'd go so far as to say that the man who closed my question is not even a programmer, and as thus, has no business here among us kings of men!
I'm not asking for close reasons, as the reasons are pretty obvious to me. I don't even want to define a gray area. I just want to discuss the difference between the ethics of a moderator who is a programmer and the ethics of a moderator who is not.
