Yes, sure I am quitting from discussing this :-) That's why I deleted my "bitter comments" from the question, I don't have time for meta discussions. To me, rules are very open to challenge, and this particular rule is doing a bad job here, and people are picky, the attitude is "sorry there is this rule, we have no real arguments but this fits to that category, so..." -- Question asks for opinion from people, yes, very broadly. But whatever, really. thanks for contributing.

@Slade: When I saw a question closed because of the reason "but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions", I find it, yes, meaningless as that is the point of the question. I wanted to delete without complaining but I couldn't. - Why don't you "accept my criticism" instead of focusing on "passive-aggresiveness"? If you change your opinion based on my attitude, you are not doing a good job either, sorry. Please quit keep talking about that and just contribute with your votes.

Hi Slade, I am not avoiding those votes. Question clearly asks for opinions and, yes, "primarily" opinions. This is not politics. There is no reason for me to fight for this question -- I prefer it to be deleted rather than closed if it violates a rule in this network.

Yes sure whatever: Closing reason is still ridiculous to me. Do I need to find good mathematicians at some coffee place to listen personal experiences of them? I don't know any other place that to ask to mathematicians. Either way, it should be deleted rather than being closed with such a silly reason, I say it as the person who asked the question.

thanks PJTraill. I meant the latter. And thanks for editing. It is much better now. I've made a slight edit as well.

comment Estimating the expectation of a derivative
can you elaborate the practical need that you obtain this problem (if any)? I am just curious.
