Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Jeff and friends don't owe anyone an explanation of how these sites are built. It could be a room full of trained super-intelligent hamsters moving rep from place to place in return for carrots, for all we know.

If Jeff and friends choose to share their wisdom scars with others by revealing facts about the implementation, that's very nice of them.

I write this discussion topic to suggest that a tag wiki on meta on the subject of the implementation might be a place for the SE crew to write down exactly as much hamster DNA sequence as they choose to reveal, so that the questions that show up, over and over, can be requited by simply inviting the questioners to read it.
