A probability theory question (here) was asked when this site was fairly new. I suspect that the closure of this question might be a result of being asked during the website's infancy -- to me, while not a masterpiece, it doesn't seem off-topic (at least when compared to today's questions).
Is there another reason this question is closed besides being off-topic (I understand the interface is limited)?
and if not...
Could I encourage votes to re-open this question?
