Here are some excerpts from the FAQ. Italicized comments are mine.
What kind of questions can I ask here?
- a specific programming problem
Nope, this isn't one.
Nope, it asks for an algorithm, but nowhere in the question is it applied to software.
- software tools commonly used by programmers
Nope, just socks.
- practical, answerable problems that are unique to the programming profession
Nope, impractical and not unique to programming.
What kind of questions should I not ask here?
You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.
Again, impractical. Just sort your socks.
Chatty, open-ended questions diminish the usefulness of our site and push other questions off the front page.
IMO this question fits the bill to a tee.
If your motivation for asking the question is “I would like to participate in a discussion about __”, then you should not be asking here.
Sure looks like that's what's going on here. Many of the answers and comments are just attempts at humor, and are not really useful.
I'd think most people would be able to find something here to refute the legitimacy of this question if they wanted to badly enough.
