Done. I agree that these add no value to the community.

Edit: On the other hand, several closed questions have answers with positive vote totals. If the questions are deleted, the answerers will lose the corresponding reputation. Not a huge deal, but I was going to delete a whole bunch of closed questions until I realized this (still deleted a few, though).

Scroll down to "Why do you allow content to be deleted?" but the short version is, you should typically delete closed content that adds no value to the community.
