On Stackoverflow it is possible to flag a question as not reproducible / or caused by a simple typographical error. Why isn't this possible here on SF?
This question was caused by a problem that can no longer be reproduced or a simple typographical error. While similar questions may be on-topic here, this one was resolved in a manner unlikely to help future readers. This can often be avoided by identifying and closely inspecting the shortest program necessary to reproduce the problem before posting.
I observed both types of threads, where the

- Typographical errors
An example for each:
I think such questions are not useful to keep, so I flagged them to review for a moderator, but both got declined. Does SF keep all threads irrespective of their helpfulness?
