Visitors to our site are taking the words "who care about delivering software responsibly" in our tagline as evidence of question topicality. Witness:
Well technically it is about software engineering... just not coding. According to the description on the Tour page, this site is not just about coding, "Software Engineering Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professionals, academics, and students working within the systems development life cycle who care about creating, delivering, and maintaining software responsibly." I'm a professional that cares about creating, delivering, and maintaining software responsibly. This may not be a typical question here but I would argue that it's not "obviously" off-topic.
This is the second time I've seen this happen, which means it's already happened more than twice.
