Why was this vim question migrated to SuperUser? It's clearly about how to use the editor. I thought it was decided that vim questions belonged on SO. Sorry if the rules have changed since I last checked, but SO is where I've been doing all my vim Q&A on the network.
The example in the question used code, but beyond that there wasn't really anything programmer-specific about the question. It picked up a flag for migration to SU (which admittedly was disputed by another user) and I agreed.
I wasn't aware of the meta discussion you linked to that made all Vim questions on-topic by consensus on SO, but I'll keep it in mind for the future unless new consensus is established here. Thanks for bringing this up.
vim feels very much like a programmer tool to me -- never mind that it is wonderful for books or papers or email or whatever else needs editing -- so I'm surprised that it was migrated to Superuser.
If your example had been sentences of prose I could understand the migration -- even though everyone I know who uses
vim is also a programmer.
