I recently asked “Why does “2xAES-256” provide “99.99%” security strength whereas “1xAES-128” provides “40%”?” on the main site.
It was kind of a "doghouse" question, as the question by itself implied that the quality of the services is highly questionable and there was a background on The Sidechannel (our chat) implying that the question wasn't asked out of confusion and couldn't therefore been considered genuine.
It's mainly for these reasons that the question got closed less than 16 hours later by our moderators. I don't want to discuss about the closure (which was reasonable) here.
My question is:
The question got a score of 4 (+6,-2), more than 400 views (within 16 hours) and the only (accepted) answer got a score of +20, does this imply that there's an interest in such questions on Crypto.SE? Or how could one explain these votes and views else?
