A while ago, I asked this question: Is the diphthong /aʊ/ generally realized as [ɑʊ] in British English? [closed] (now closed). I did not receive any answer which is fine but I don't see why this is opinion-based. In the question, I am asking if the diphthong phoneme /aʊ/ is generally realized as [ɑʊ] in British English (I apologize for using such a vague term as "British English", but I'm sure it is understandable that I am talking about the accent known as "Modern RP" as most of the pronunciation question that ask about "British English" are about that particular accent).
Did the close-voters actually read and understand my question correctly or did they just threw their votes randomly? Can anyone explain why?
(NOTE: there are so many questions which are not only vague, but really opinion-based and are still open.)
