# Why did a moderator remove my question from HNQ?

Recently, I have asked why did a question has a lot of views, and it turned out that it is an HNQ. But in the timeline, it said the question is removed from HNQ by a moderator. But why is it removed?

• Somewhat related recent discussion: Under what criteria should we remove questions from the HNQ list? Oct 3 '19 at 14:24
• The title is poorly chosen: it's not your question. Oct 6 '19 at 20:34
• This question being in the Meta HNQ is still getting some heat to your answer... Oct 11 '19 at 20:18

Let me take a crack at answering this, being the moderator in question. There are essentially two reasons:

1. The question is subpar. The fact that it was later closed, reopened, and attracted more closing votes now show that I am not the only person who felt this way. I don't think it's necessarily a bad question, that's irrelevant. But I don't think this is the sort of question we want to advertise on the HNQ list as representative of our site.

2. Arguably, the title should contain $$\rm\LaTeX$$ anyway.
