This question (not mine) was closed very rapidly as "Questions on Stack Overflow are expected to relate to programming or software development within the scope defined in the FAQ." Closing this question seems to depend on a very narrow interpretation of what constitutes programming or software development - ie if it does not contain code it is not within scope. I have recently had one of my questions closed on similar grounds, but did not pursue it further since my view of that question was obviously going to be biased. Here the OP has a real problem, and is seeking advice on that problem. It does offer the opportunity to create a valuable answer that fulfils SO's original aim to improve the internet. It is true that is is more discursive than a "how to twiddle the left hand frucback in functional language scraped" but that does not (IMHO) make it an invalid question. It does seem to me that current votes to close questions are both being very quick off the mark, and as I said for this question, taking an unduly narrow interpretation of what is on or off topic.
If such questions are considered out of scope, I do think this should be considered for migration rather than closure. If there are questions of this nature what is the best way to get them answered within the Stack Overflow family of sites.
