This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Because the question asked will have to fall in at least one of those categories. – Bart Feb 26 '13 at 20:39
Well if it's not a discussion, bug, support or feature request, what is it? – LittleBobbyTables Feb 26 '13 at 20:39
And OT, but useful: How do I participate in Meta Stack Overflow and not die trying? – Bart Feb 26 '13 at 20:41

You must choose one of those, because a Meta question will have to be a discussion, feature request, bug report or support question. It's as simple as that. – Bart Feb 26 '13 at 20:43
