We'll this recently happened to me, and now I'm out for social justification, so to speak...I'm quite an avid user of StackOverflow, so I do realize that the use of the voting mechanism had been debated ad nauseum, and that it's per users discretion how they wish to apply their god given right to vote.
But I do feel I have a valid point.
I had a question relating to programming principle / guidelines. Which to me at least relates to this forum, it was closed off as too broad and received 2 down votes...
Now my question:
If I cant ask such questions on here, where would the appropriate forum be?
a . As per the comment of @Yannis Rizos, it seems that there is no place for opinion based / semi-opinion based discussions. Even if an acceptable answer gets chosen. This is quite sad to me at least, as I prefer the StackExchange platform and the community around it. And having to "leave" it to just ask a simple question that's not tech, but tech theory related doesn't seem ideal to me.
- Does the fact that its perceived as broad by some, warrant a down vote?
What if the mods/those with the power to close purely have a different opinion on what is perceived as too broad?
a. Just as an FYI, my question was actually answered satisfactory within context to my question. Thus was it really worth the intervention?
