I have a question ServiceStack vs ASP.Net Web API which was closed. While I understand the reasoning behind the closure (as per FAQ) there have been a lot of comments to reopen the question. It would be nice to see the question reopened (as I agree that it has value), but I'm not sure on how to rephrase it in order to be a better fit. Could I get some pointers?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – CRABOLO, rene, gnat, Martijn Pieters, senshin
If anything the question is a challenge between press releases and feature lists to battle it out over audience share and leather belt straps.
The pros and cons gauntlet has been laid down and the only way for that question to be answered is to have sales reps, myopic fans or advocates gloss it up.
This continues a problem with "what are the pros and cons" type questions as all you do is have camps set up firing volleys into the air, trying to win the war of loud and asking for a piece of rumcake to wash it down with.
If it was about migration from one and needing to know how to overcome a hurdle, there's a question. If it was about making the new environment work like the old, there's another valid question.
What's the problem here beyond product comparison? A blog post missing a location.
