...no. It doesn't even look like a Stack Exchange site. –  Cody Gray Apr 25 '12 at 22:47
    
It uses shapado.com –  Bart Apr 25 '12 at 22:47

How TF is this not a relevant question? I've been searching for an Ask Debian, and I found this answer. Luckily there is one relevant answer before some zealots managed to close and "off-topic" the question. I swear, some of the most useful answers on SE (another example: best library / framework / language categories) come in answers to closed questions. You should care more about useful results than ideological purity, zealots (then again, you would be normals not zealots if you did). We should really track the zealots who do this and see their statistics. –  dan3 Oct 23 '13 at 10:57
    
@dan3. It's Ask Debian. You know, Debian, the bastion of ideological purity. Of course it's not using Stack Exchange. –  TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Nov 9 '13 at 1:12
    
Btw, you’re supposed to ask “Debian-questions” on unix.stackexchange.com –  Robert Siemer Mar 14 at 9:28

Is someone running around slapping people with a splintered ruler? I guess in the minds of some there are magical "no question" zones and other various and rigidly inflexible ways to 'handle' 'those people' that seek to elevate their understanding. –  Tim Danielson Jul 27 at 2:16

No, I don't think so. It has the following text at the bottom of that website:

All Shapado.com content and data are available under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. Powered by Shapado 4.0.1 under the GNU Affero General Public License

It doesn't look anywhere close to a StackExchange site.
