Is there anything wrong with this question? Can it be fixed or should it for any reason be deleted?

[Edit] The question talks about high-level concepts that are relatively common and well-known. It provides links to descriptions of the two concepts. Lack of research on the part of the asker is not the problem here.


1 Answer 1


When asking a question like "why is X different from Y", the very minimal thing I would expect from any asker on this site is to present his thoughts, arguments and research why he thinks that X is different or (maybe not different) from Y.

Otherwise such a question could invite to a broad discussion, people guessing around what the asker was thinking, and there willl probably no right answer. And this is exactly what SE does not want to be - this site is not a discussion forum, it is a Q&A site.

  • Thanks, I can see how this could be a the problem and I'll think about how I can revise the question without instigating further discussion. I was actually about to include my thoughts at the time of writing, but erased almost everything in favor of being clear and sussinct, as well as humble - "if I say what I think the answer is, why am I asking"-kind of thing.

    @GregKramida: looks much better now. After such a huge edit, however, you check if the answers you already got still match your question, and if not, leave a comment for the answerers.
