Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

OK, here it goes: How can I store truffles? (Now migrated to Cooking)

Is this a programming question? It does have an upvote and an upvoted answer, so there are users who think this is a proper question. However, it also got two off-topic close votes.

After a quick Googling I found that is some sort of package for Ruby — which is a programming language — so I guess this can be treated as programming. In such a case, should such questions be tagged with the language's tag as well? ( in this case.)

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

OP mentioned kitchen not ruby :) Regarding upvote, most probably that is from a robo-reviewer. Answer is a sarcastic one, I guess. – Aziz Shaikh Dec 5 '12 at 7:58
Found it. The question doesn't seem to match the cadence of what Foodcritic actually is though. – Makoto Dec 5 '12 at 7:59
Oh well, with the enormous variety of programming languages and techniques these days I can never tell! Thanks @Makoto. :) – Shadow Wizard Dec 5 '12 at 8:15
A new bot in training… ? – Iain Dec 5 '12 at 8:22
@Iain good catch! Wonder what's the point.. this isn't spam just useless nonsense. Deleted the question from Stack Overflow now. – Shadow Wizard Dec 5 '12 at 8:30
Ahahah -------- – Pëkka Dec 5 '12 at 10:50
Fiends that truffle with us in a double sense. – Rosinante Dec 5 '12 at 14:46
We could have migrated this to Seasoned Advice. – casperOne Dec 5 '12 at 16:15
Eh. Should've been tagged chef. Seems more appropriate. – mikeTheLiar Dec 5 '12 at 16:32

I've migrated that over to Seasoned Advice (deleting the technical answer before it was migrated).

Namely, I wanted to be able to say that I've migrated a question from SO to Seasoned Advice, as we don't get a chance to do that around here.

Fortunately, it is on topic for that site, as per their FAQ:

If you have a question about (emphasis mine):

  • Cooking & food preparation methods
  • Kitchen equipment
  • Food handling and storage

Regardless of the fact that it could be spam, there's no reason we can't make lemonade out of lemons here (pun intended).

I think it's just spam. – NullUserException อ_อ Dec 5 '12 at 16:25
@NullUserExceptionอ_อ So it'll really show them if we turn it into a useful repository of information on Truffles that is helpful to future googlers. – Servy Dec 5 '12 at 16:27
@Servy That's the reasoning, and it's already got an answer. – casperOne Dec 5 '12 at 16:32
Thanks! I am really curious to see if this is bot or not! – Shadow Wizard Dec 5 '12 at 21:26

If it is a programming question, it has been written in a way that makes it seems a joke.
It rather seems a question for Seasoned Advice that has been written in the wrong site.

Hope you are right, posted comment to the poor OP. – Shadow Wizard Dec 5 '12 at 8:17
Same question exactly was also posted on other places around the internet (including in other site on Stack Exchange as mentioned in this comment) so this leads me to believe it's a bot, maybe preparing the ground for spam attack. Does not look like innocent mistake. – Shadow Wizard Dec 5 '12 at 8:35
