Likelihood to "go smoothly": necessarily a positive quality in a topic?

I'm curious about the deletion message for an article I posted to the blue: "This is a kind of incoherent article on a topic that's not likely to go smoothly. -- restless_nomad". I have no objection to the deletion! But the stated reason raises an interesting question, I think: are good topics necessarily topics that generate discussions which go smoothly? [more inside]

One look at the wonderful posts on the blue today which will surely continue the so pleasant conversations we have had:

CSS style markup issue -- Is MetaFilter non-compliant?

You have a style element in body. That ain’t kosher, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s causing problems with more standards-compliant browsers.

Should I filter MetaFilter (asks mathowie)?

This thread sucks. The link doesn't jump down to the story, the subject matter isn't very funny or interesting, it's just stupid. The post is too long, the comments are pretty pointless. I would delete it, but it could create more trouble than it is worth. What should be done about sub-par links? Anything? Take the good with the bad?
