Over on Stack Exchange site Programming Puzzles & Code Golf we're noticing a few questions getting migrated from Stack Overflow. Most of them don't belong on Programming Puzzles & Code Golf, but that's not the point. The question I have is why they're being migrated at all.
My analysis of the commonality between exhibits A, B, C is that they're about "leisure" programming rather than business. But if I'm right that that's the reason that people are flagging them for migration, I don't see why they don't belong here. The FAQ says that Stack Overflow is for
- a specific programming problem
- a software algorithm...
... practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.
Are people interpreting that to mean that only problems encountered in the day job are valid? And if so, should they be?
