comment TIARA - a tool for enhancing SE beauty
I don't see what to do with heavily downvoted answers, really. They're wrong, and clearly shown as such. What needs cleanup isn't the downvoted content really, it's the content that should be downvoted but isn't.

Why show only closed questions? Downvoted questions might need closing, whereas I don't know why downvoted closed questions would be different from non-downvoted closed questions.

comment Prefered way to retrieve all search results
See the question: if there's a deleted result, it's counted in the 100. I guess deleted results are eliminated late in the chain. I thought …/page=2 just after …/page=1 was counted differently, but I can't find a reference to that now, I might have imagined it or confused with some other site's API.

comment Prefered way to retrieve all search results
Ok, this technique works to avoid skipping an item in the middle. It assumes there aren't 100 questions with the same date (this is unlikely to happen naturally, but what about a mass import?). Your termination condition is wrong, there can be less than 100 results at any time. This technique is rather costly; as I understand it, querying page=2 after page=1 is cheaper in the backend (because the data is already sitting in some cache, I guess), and from the user's point of view it's cheaper because it doesn't count as a separate request against the API usage quota.

comment Draft Specification for API v2.0
For the paging issue, a cumbersome workaround seems to exist (I haven't tried it).
