A question that I asked on Stack Overflow was closed as "not a real question". The box explaining this states that "the question ... cannot be reasonably answered in its current form". But the question was answered in that form; in fact, it was answered twice over. I consider Kitsune's answer a satisfactory one, and therefore I accepted it (and I thought both answers were reasonable, so I upvoted them both).
The FAQ says that "if your motivation is 'I would like others to explain ______ to me', then you are probably OK". Well, I did, and people did, but nevertheless the question has been labelled "not a real question". I think it evidently is "a real question", and one that can be answered, and I am curious as to why it was labelled thus.
