What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I was about to add in my comment for this question:

"Moved to Reddit"

but ... I don't want to start a comment war or anything ( even thought I have actually linked the closed question there ) .

Would it be rude to post such comment while closing a question.


I think the title was misleading, I have change it to reflect what my real question is.

Why reddit and not somewhere else? – Gnoupi Apr 6 '10 at 15:37
Why anywhere. If you think it doesn't belong just close it (if you've got the rep). – ChrisF Apr 6 '10 at 15:39
@ChrisF: I vote to close it. I was just about to add in my comment "This is interesting but doesn't belong to SO, try reddit" ( for instance ) But I wonder if that last part would be rude or not, which is the reason of this post. – OscarRyz Apr 6 '10 at 15:47
this is arguably a SU question and has possibly been covered there as well superuser.com/questions/4048/… – Jeff Atwood Apr 6 '10 at 19:47

If you think it's a reddit-friendly (discussion) topic, then say so - that can be a valid reason to close.

Personally, I think the question belongs on Super User... but if you have a good argument for excluding it from all of SOFU, then reading it could help dissuade me from voting to migrate and therefore be useful.

WTB RedditOverflow.com.

(I know about the damn StackExchange thing, so don't bother commenting about it...)

Chacha102, you can create RedditOverflow.com with stack exchange: stackexchange.com – Andreas Bonini Apr 6 '10 at 15:50
I agree @kop, he should totally create a stack exchange site. Chacha, for more info, head to stackexchange.com – juanformoso Apr 6 '10 at 16:02
I suspect you mean that StackExchange thing as a joke, but it really exists, and you can use it to create your own site, such as RedditOverflow.com. – beska Apr 6 '10 at 17:33

I've referred some subjective or argumentative topics to http://reddit.com/r/programming, as it's a good place to hold lengthy discussions. Another suitable place, especially for career advice, is Ask Slashdot. I wouldn't find your comment rude or out of place.
