I know what you're thinking. Egads! How did such a thing to come to pass? Or, more likely, Why won't that Ben person just shut up?
Well, it's a story of derring-do and glorious deeds uncountable, or something.
I'll illustrate with a comment:
I specified the specific product in the title of this topic : WSO2 Identity Server and the Tag is WSO2. So I expect answers from people who work for WSO2, and if I ask these questions it's because in their product website they point us to this forum and ask us to put WSO2 Tag for answers :)
and it's true:
WSO2 Products User List
WSO2 participates in community support for the products using the excellent Q&A site stackoverflow.com. We monitor and participate in the discussion there. For users looking for commercial support with guaranteed response times please contact us here: http://wso2.com/contact
This has resulted in questions like these; the top three to four are effectively support queries straight from the website the rest are just, well see for yourself...
- Does WSO2 ESB support web sockets?
From the top users list in the wso2 tag there does seem to be some attempt by the company to answer questions, but with 77.4% unanswered in the last week and 53.2% over all time they're not doing very well.
The tag doesn't seem to have a lot of tie-in with the rest of Stack Overflow, of the 1,394 questions tagged the tag with the highest number of related questions that isn't affiliated with the company and isn't a concept is PHP, with 51.
To turn this into a question, is there a standard way to report companies foisting all their support questions onto Stack Overflow and is there anything that Stack Exchange would like to do about it if a company is doing so?
Am I completely wrong?
