How did my answer in the question about politicians being required to release tax returns not qualify as an answer?
To clarify this meta question: Your answer to Can a State in the U.S. require candidates to release taxes to be on the ballot for national office? was:
They could, but it would be seen as an attempt to keep certain people from running.
It had 3 downvotes, and I thought this was sufficiently over the line to agree with another user who flagged it for deletion. I deleted it because it contains no elements of law nor even allusion to legal principles.
We could have left it alone and let the downvotes keep it out of view. But as noted in other recent meta discussions: we are trying to remind users that this is Law.SE. It is a Stack Exchange, not an open discussion forum. Answers that have nothing to do with law are as off-topic as questions that have nothing to do with law.
