I asked a question on stackoverflow about password strength and it got closed as non-constructive, but I actually did learn stuff from the answers. I was advised to post here to see whether the question sould be migrated here rather than closed. Any opinions?

Absolutely.
Though it shouldnt have been closed there as not constructive, it should have been closed as off-topic - it's not a programming question, but it definitely belongs here.
By the by, "not constructive" is really questionable - it's definitely constructive, and its also not a question of being subjective: this is a clear cut, mathematical answer.

    Agreed. This question is perfectly on-topic here. There are many security-related questions on Stack Overflow that would probably get better answers here ... but so it goes. – D.W. Sep 16 '11 at 6:48
