Would the “General Reference” close reason be useful here on Programmers?
On Scifi.SE, they have a close reason "General Reference" that states "This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information."
I think this would be tremendously useful and a much better explanation for closing many of the "panic questions" and "help vampires" that pop up. Would it be possible for us to get such a thing? I can't count the number of times I've seen questions like this appear on Programmers.
