There is currently a vote to delete this very old thread. I am writing to register my strong protest against this and bring it to the attention of other users here on meta.

If there's one vote to delete, you shouldn't worry about it too much; it takes 10 votes to delete a question which such a high score. Delete votes never expire, but the chances that it will accumulate so many votes are low.

I'd say that the question is rightfully closed (it's a textbook list question); similar old questions around the network have got a historical lock, though that would prevent voting and editing.

    $\begingroup$ I agree with the question remaining closed, but (even aside from my highly-upvoted answer) I think it should not be deleted. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @EmilJeřábek no, but nobody (aside from moderators) can cast delete votes now. $\endgroup$
