After I flagged this canonical question: Is a clean install better than upgrading? to be locked to prevent it from being deleted after it had already received 3 delete votes, my flag was reviewed as follows:
It looks like it's not possible to delete this question anyway because other questions are closed as duplicates of this. Locking the question will prevent us from editing and updating the content.
It seems to me that upgrading has gotten a lot better in recent Ubuntu releases, so I agree that the content needs to be edited and updated. Furthermore I expect that upgrading Ubuntu will improve when the transition from Unity and Xorg to GNOME and Wayland is fully completed.
My question is what to do about the deletion votes, either do nothing or apply a hack solution like reopening this question to clear the 3 delete votes and then closing it again for being primarily opinion-based if that is what it is. It's hard to get rid of primarily opinion-based because all it takes is another fundamental change in Ubuntu to bring it back. I don't mind if this question gets closed again, but I want to make it harder to delete it.
