With that information down, it wasn't that the Meta Question was hidden from users. First of all, it was featured in the "Featured on Meta" section on the main site inside that yellow-ish box on the right.
Also in the chat room it was posted by the Meta Question Feed Bot and I even predicted this question that I am currently answering coming on the 3rd of December, almost a month before this.
the Meta Question was up for [INSERT TIME] and that entire time the question was displayed to on the main site as such it was visible to anyone on the site, including "regular" users. if you wanted to keep id requests why didn't you post an answer? you as just as capable as anyone else to
You only need 5 rep to post on Meta and 125 rep to vote down (15 to vote up) as such just as my premonition on chat says, you could have posted an answer for keeping them and giving your opinion why they should be kept. People could have voted for this. This happened in 2016 when Ankit Sharma posted for not banning them and they were kept
Meta is where the community comes together to discuss how to manage the main site from how to deal with tags, how to improve questions/answer or how one moderates and what is on and off topic.
Now I may sound harsh in saying this and I am not just saying this to you Madmada, but to the other users who have the same or similar thoughts in their minds that they didn't get a say in this but didn't even vote on any of the answers, but to put it bluntly
Meta is there to help build the site and improve it's moderation by the community. you don't get a say if you don't participate, just like you don't get a say in an country's election if you don't vote (No Vote != A Protest Vote)
The question was open for over a month, it's not like you didn't have time.
