Consider the following question on SO. It has lots of votes, lots of views and lots of useful thorough answers. However, it is closed as not constructive. But it is clearly a good source of information, and very useful judging from the 100,000+ views. Would a similar question comparing and contrasting two similar languages be appropriate for this site? For example, here is a simple mockup of what my question look like:

I would like to learn (language X) or (language Y) to do (Z). What should I consider while deciding which language to learn? What are some of the pros and cons of each? What are the biggest differences between the two languages?
