Currently, $3$ questions on math stack exchange have a score -10 or worse, bot are not yet deleted.

Should questions with a score of -10 or worse be deleted ? Or even automatically deleted ?

A question with a score -10 or worse will usually be a low-quality question, so should such questions be deleted ?

Does an automatic deletion of such question make sense ? I am curious what the MSE-users think about this.

    $\begingroup$ I'd like to think that only deletion-worthy questions make it to -10, but I'm concerned that an automatic deletion policy would be somewhat easily manipulable by a group of voters. I don't think this is a very big issue, though - there are so few questions that make it to -10 or below without deletion votes. $\endgroup$
