I came across this question in the review queue. Sometimes I come across questions of similar form. My thought is to vote to close as "too-broad" because:
- Question is very broad, there are many, many ways to perform that task.
- No code was posted, no specific coding problem was identified.
But, and this is in general, I always get tripped up when I see that these questions have a reasonable accepted answer: I would have voted it too-broad immediately had I seen the question pop up in the new questions stream; but when I see that the answerer seemed to find the question clear enough (and his answer was accepted and deemed satisfactory), I end up going back and thinking "if it was clear enough for the answerer to provide a specific answer, doesn't that mean it wasn't too broad after all?"
How should I handle questions like this?
And, in general, how should I handle questions that, alone, seem too broad, but when answered, seem specific? Should I ignore the answers when considering closing a question, or do they retroactively change the quality of the question?
