the following question: DBGT: Does Goku die of old age when he turns SSJ4 in the future? got closed for (in my opinion) very wrong reasons. It got closed for being "primarily opinion based". In the comments practically the only reason I got was "GT is not canon", which is obviously a load of bull. An anime is an anime, and within its own canon, it is most definitely canon.
Another comment I got was this:
I think people downvoted your post because you are asking a question which answers can only be based on assumptions. Insist that opinion be backed up with facts and references.
Well, I did. I literally had a header saying "the facts:" with a bullet list underneath it, stating the facts. (now updated to facts and references for clarity)
My question is most definitely based on things that are canon within the show and of which there are many references. My question is entirely based on things that actually happened in the show and there are no assumptions within it. Therefore I would like my question to be reopened. I don't see where the vote was coming from in any way except for bias against GT.
Thank you :)
Edit just to make something clear to whomever agrees with why my question got closed: Does Goku become the dragon itself at the end of Dragon Ball GT? - a question with 5 upvotes even! It's been favourited, and hey, it explains even less than my question does! This question should be closed for being opinion-based!
Why do the Black Star Dragon Balls exist? - hey look, another one! 8 upvotes! Again, a question with way less facts and references than mine, yet this one gets respected.
Why can't Pan go Super Saiyan? - oh look, another one!
How did Goten and Trunks become Super Saiyan so easily? - look, yet another!
Are half-blooded Saiyans stronger than pure-blooded Saiyans? - hey guys, what a surprise, another one!
-- I'll just stop here. Obviously I've made my point by finding all these questions that should have been closed even more than mine, in the recommended/related sidebar as top questions, within 1 minute. Anime.stackexchange is absolutely littered with these types of questions (Because otherwise there would be no need to ask them)
