Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

A friend of mine posted on Facebook a question for duck-type programmers, and it started a conversation around the topic (comments after comment), that I think is more suitable for a StackOverflow question, How do I "import" that Facebook thread into a StackOverflow question?

Can you provide a link please? – Shadow Wizard Apr 16 '13 at 23:03
That doesn't sound suitable for Stack Overflow at all. – Bill the Lizard Apr 16 '13 at 23:03
What is a "duck-type programmer", anyhow? Do they quack? Because I only click when I program. – Richard J. Ross III Apr 16 '13 at 23:04… – Mandx Apr 16 '13 at 23:04

@Yannis I understand duck typing - I was pointing out the incorrect grammar by the OP. – Richard J. Ross III Apr 16 '13 at 23:08
You don't. You absolutely don't. – Jack Maney Apr 17 '13 at 0:06

Stack Overflow works best with specific and answerable questions, and it's not really a platform for extended discussions. If there's a good programming question hidden somewhere in the Facebook conversation, the best thing you can do is to simply ask it. It shouldn't take you more than five minutes to type it in (if it's indeed a specific question and not a discussion) and you'll probably earn some rep for your effort.
