It irks me every time I vote to close a bad question as "Not a real question" when it is in fact a properly formed interrogative statement, just one not appropriate to the site in question.
Could we please eliminate the confusion around what is a "real" question by instead talking about what is a question appropriate to the SOFU site?
I think at the end of the day, "Not a real question" really means the asker did not put enough effort into their question.
Some other possibilities:
- Not enough effort.
- Not a worthwhile question.
- Not an answerable question.
