Is there any way to dispute or challenge a question being closed?
I have found over Stack Overflow many times questions that people want the answers to but get marked as non-constructive or off-topic. Never before have I put much thought behind this until one of my own questions was noted as off topic, noted being outside scope defined in the FAQ.
While the FAQ specifically states "a software algorithm" as one of the topics on Stack Overflow, and while I was not asking about a specific algorithm, I was looking for an algorithm. While I don't care about my question specifically, this is a community site where the community up-votes and favorites the questions it would like to have answered. If this is true, there should be the ability to cancel, negate, or dispute a questions state by reputation.
To make this clear, I am NOT saying that my question could be off topic since I asked such a generalized question but am more interesting in knowing why and how further disputes can be handled.
