Where is the option to flag your question to indicate you are not interested in suggestions or workarounds?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
I'd say I'm sure this one will be declined.
Adding a simple
is probably enough
One of the biggest benefits of having a resource like StackOverflow is to document ways to fix a certain problem. You may not be interested in Workarounds or Suggestions but there may be future users that come upon your question who ARE interested in workarounds or other suggestions. That's the beauty of SO.
Further... the voting mechanisms of SO typically do a good job of weeding good suggestions and workarounds from bad. The real "waste of time" responses usually get deleted or booted. So, you're left with decent options that have been vetted by a community of knowledgeable folks.
There's usually no reason to be so inflexible. As the Perl community says, TIMTOWTDI (there is more than one way to do it)!
