Today I posted a question on the parent site.
Soon enough users started to close it as off-topic. I tried to find out the reason why by commenting there, many agreed that it's on-topic.
I am very much interested to know, why is it closed? If it is on-topic, could it be re-opened?
I did get my answer, but I don't think it benefits future readers to keep this question marked "closed as off-topic".
