If you can turn a bad question into a good question by editing out the moral value statements, by all means do it. Just improving the question should be reason enough.

Please don't. It's implementation at Stack Overflow causes all manner of side effects, including "pr0blem," "Halp," and "Knapsack Issue." In addition, unlike many other behaviors, this one isn't overridable by moderators, so it's forced on people unconditionally. SE seems especially enamored of this "fix," so if you get it here, you'll get it permanently, ...

Just changing the title and adding a tag isn't a "very substantial edit". While there are differences between unit testing in general and unit testing in a specific environment, are you 100% that that's what the OP intended?

As the person who wrote the accepted answer I'll add my 2 cents... While the question specifically mentions VS 2010, the solution is not restricted to that version alone. The supporting article that I referenced in the answer was written for VS 2008 and works equally as well in VS 2010 as there are no differences. I think adding VS 2010 as a tag to the ...

No, you shouldn't edit-out statements of morality. Perception of right and wrong is fundamental to human nature, and while some questions invoking morality may be too broad, the statements themselves are part and parcel of rational discourse. This particular question was way too broad to be a good one, but if it has been asked instead as "What is a non-...

A workaround worth considering is posting links to these questions to CV chat room: okay, I plan to post here all the 'problem' and 'help' questions that will be dropped at us from now on. If you spot such a question before me, I would appreciate if you drop it here. SE team and moderators want us, the community, to handle these? all right, let's do it ...
