That was a good question. Down votes on meta just mean that the community disagrees with the point raised in the question. The answers were a useful justification of the community's stance on this issue and is therefore a valuable resource for members in the future.

Undelete what? You mean this question? It is still alive, so are its answers. –  KennyTM Aug 29 '10 at 16:01
@Kenny: Yes, that's the one! I guess it dropped off the list because of all the down votes. Now I suppose I should delete this question or maybe you can close it as not a real question. (I voted to close) –  Tom Stephens Aug 29 '10 at 16:56
People seem to have downvoted the question because they think that indicates their disapproval of the suggestion that we should downvote complex answers to simple questions. But all they're doing is burying the question, which is not what they want to do... –  Seamus Aug 29 '10 at 20:57
@Seamus: That's a design problem. See…. On meta.SO a very-low-voted question won't be buried, so shouldn't here. –  KennyTM Aug 29 '10 at 21:11
