I posted the following question on programmers.stackexchange.com : Is there any language-agnostic specification for "String Natural Sorting Order"
I posted it on programmers.stackexchange.com as the description of the website says it is for "conceptual questions" vs SO being for "on the spot answers".
Unfortunately instead of being positively welcomed it was quickly closed because "opinion-based".
The good part is that closing a question "only" stops people from posting an answer, not to comment on the actually question.
In the end, somebody did find an on-the-spot answer & posted it in the comments, see the comment from Bart van Ingen Schenau on Sep 29 at 10:35.
Now I have to say this is not the first time that I get users tag my question as "opinion-based" or "not constructive". And it really starts to annoy me as I get the feeling that many users tend to do that "only" because they do not know the answer of the question AND on top of that these users would not even advise the person who posted the question on where would be a more appropriate place to put the question, or how the question could be improved.
Finally, can someone reopen my question so that the answer from Bart van Ingen Schenau can be marked as an answer? sigh....
