The question https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/50373/what-dont-do-latex-text-composition shows that it is closed by me (and others) as “not constructive”. I did however vote to close it as a duplicate of Best practices references. So the question now gives a wrong representation of my vote (I am of the opinion, that the actual question (“Is there a list of LaTeX best practices?”) is interesting, and we shouldn't close as “not constructive” because of bad English).

    This has sort of been discussed on meta.SO: Distinguish votes to close by reason.

    @Jarrod: Showing wrong information is a bug, not a feature request.

    Yet another instance of wrong closing information: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/51158/?noredirect=1 -- I just voted to close this question, but I wasn't given any option to migrate. It is implied that I think this question is on-topic on another site just because I said it's off-topic here. (In this case, it was correct though.)

Thanks for bringing this up. I cannot reproduce the close reasons issue with the current build of our network sites. Please let me know if the problem remains for you.

    Well, 2.5 years might have made this difficult to reproduce.
