I just flagged a question that was off topic, that should really be on programmers. It was not listed as a choice.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10920881/is-there-any-functional-difference-between-immutable-value-types-and-immutable-r

The options were serverfault, superuser, tex and dba but no ability to select programmers anymore, why is this?

    Too many people tried to migrate crap that didn't belong there. – Daniel Fischer Jun 6 '12 at 20:09

    Flag the question for moderation attention and ask for it to be migrated to ProgSE, I just did. – yannis Jun 6 '12 at 20:14

It was removed, as recent stats showed that Serverfault, SU, Tex and DBA were the 4 most common migration paths. SO -> Programmers also had the highest rejected migration rate (~36% the past 90 days), so I presume that contributed to the decision.

    Have you tried explaining that to someone? "I'm sorry, your question isn't programming related. Try programmers.stackexchange.com instead!". – Mike B Jun 6 '12 at 20:24

    I find it hard to believe that Tex questions outrank security ones that need to be moved. – NotMe Jul 11 '12 at 0:43

    Why not let people choose, with a dropdown? I don't get what the extra control is there for? – Lee Louviere Jul 25 '12 at 21:13
