This question is spam, it is written by a phony user, it is phrased in an obvious attempt to grab attention, using silly profane acronyms that you have to decipher, but it is asking a legitimate question, and there are interesting things to say about it.

Lattice QCD and the 5th dimension

Should it be closed, or answered?

Similar questions can be asked about obvious commercial spam (answered, in this case, and probably of interest, but clearly written by an advertizing department):

Plenoptic camera and display

I don't think the question in question is obvious spam, it's just not particularly well written. In a case like this I'd say edit it to clarify it (e.g. expand the acronyms, maybe remove some of the "flowery" language) and answer it.

If a question is so badly written that you can't even make sense of it, then voting to close it is probably more appropriate. If a question contains a completely irrelevant link or URL, use a spam flag instead.

Hmmm...I had missed the money quote when I view this previously:

Should I buy a shirt that says: 5DLQCD or STFU?
