Yesterday, a question entitled Is Euclid dead? has been asked in which the OP states:
"Currently I am leading a campaign for the return of EG to the syllabus of the high schools of my country (Cyprus) and I would like to hear arguments FOR the return of EG in high schools."
Within about a day, this question received more than 7000 views, which seems hardly possible without more-or-less massively advertising it outside MO, and its score raised to about 50. It was closed, quickly reopened and now closed again. It received 10 answers so far.
Given that this question was all-in-all received so extraordinarily well: is it really considered good practice to ask a question on MO to promote some campaign and gather arguments in favor of it?
