I'm following the tag
[statistics], and consider the programming of statistical procedures to be a valid topic to ask about on this site. Yet, I couldn't help but notice that many of the
[statistics]-tagged questions aren't about programming; they deal with statistical problems. Apart from being off-topic, these questions are likely to get better answers at stats.stackexchange.com
Apparently, they often dive under the radar of the mods. Very few get closed for being off-topic. As I don't have enough reputation yet, I can't move a statistical question to the other site. I've answered quite a few of them, only to realize later on I shouldn't have done so.
[statistics] is definitely encouraging off-topic questions that would better be asked on stats.stackexchange.com. Should we get rid of it?
