I'm trying hard to avoid using Programmers as the new and improved dumping ground for unwanted SO questions, but the flags keep coming. Right now the question How to handle people who lie on their resume is close to being resurrected, and there's a request in the queue to migrate it to Programmers. This is clearly off-topic for SO, but I'm not sure if it will just get closed here as well. Do you guys want questions like this, or should I kill it with fire?
It seems awfully generic to me -- how is "guy who lies on his resume" specific to programming versus any other profession?
The answers (the top two voted ones anyway) don't strike me as particularly programmer-specific, either.
Note that in the general case my criteria for preservation is:
if a question has no lasting and permanent value, it should be deleted.
I would be very reluctant to migrate old questions. This one is nearly two year's old.
It would be far better to keep it closed (and even locked) on Stack Overflow.
In this case I've added a note to the question over here, but might have to lock it if it gets too much bad attention.
If you can make it significantly programmer specific I don't see why not. I believe it would be a good question along the vein of they put a buzzword on paper but can't clearly define it or really understand what it is. Similar to the agile buzzword question.
