Questions with a lot more comments than upvotes tend to be problematic for our site. When you see a question without a lot of comments from different users, consider a close vote for "Unclear What You're Asking", or editing the question to include clarifying information from the comments below.
I was browsing the front page this morning trying to see what questions were active. I came across this question:
9 upvotes, 2 answers, one with 21 upvotes. Looks pretty good.
Only there are 14 (!!!) comments on the questions, and clarifications under the top answer too. Yet no close votes. If there are 14 comments needed to discuss the question but not having enough meat to be an answer on their own, to me it's pretty clear that the question is "unclear what you're asking" (and have voted to close as such).
I don't think the question is necessarily bad, just that as-is our community is having issues understanding how to answer it (which is why people comment). Also telling is that the top answer has double the upvotes as the question itself.
If we want to keep question/answer quality high, I think questions like this should be fixed early either by closing and then commenting/editing, or by a quick edit when it first appears.
I created a quick query that identifies posts like this. And a lot of them seem to be problematic.
