This question already has an answer here:
Yes, I know there is this Why is Stack Overflow's meta also the meta of the whole Stack Exchange engine? question, but the tone of the answer seems to perpetuate the notion that other, non-IT SE sites don't actually matter.
If I come here for some honest Q&A about policies and procedures relevant to the whole family of SE sites and I'm met with a load "pure" SO jargon/examples I wonder why it is labelled as something different.
I'm aware of the history but that doesn't justify the general state of confusion of this, MSO, site.
