The question Math for computer science? was recently closed, without a single person leaving a comment presenting any reason for closure, and this despite my asking for such justification in a comment before the question was closed. So I'll ask it here: why would you vote to close this question?
I know there are other questions like this on math.SE that are not closed, but to be honest I don't like them either. It seems to me that questions like this are pitched at the wrong level of generality: either they should be more specific to and include more details of the OP's situation (in which case at least it would be easier to agree on an answer) or they should be phrased more generally to apply to situations beyond the OP's (although this comes with its own problems).
I am willing to change my mind, although I'll refrain from reopening the question unilaterally if someone does change my mind so as not to "short-circuit the community decision process."
