Yesterday I posted up the following question: How do I use Google protobuf to communicate over a serial port? and it was closed this morning as "Too Broad."

No comments were posted to the question and as near as I can tell the stock feed back from the close banner is irrelevant because I included the relevant block of code that is likely the cause of the problem, i.e. there's a correct way of doing things and I suspect I'm not doing it right.

How exactly is this question "too broad?"
