An odd question, perhaps. But I think it needs to be considered.
Take for example, this question: Merge with security proposal?
As a question alone, in the Meta forums of the IT Security StackExchange, this is a good question. It is specific, on topic, and is something that the community should come to a final decision upon.
However, as an idea, it is obviously regarded as not good. I'll not go into any arguments for or against it here, but as it stands now the vote count nets out to negative three. So, either there's a lot of people disagreeing with my above assessment of the question's quality, or a lot of people are voting against the idea instead of the question.
I think this is something we need to try to standardize, so that we don't have votes competing at cross-purpose.
