Closing a programming question as off-topic here on Meta generates this message:
This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason: "Programming questions are off-topic on Meta Stack Overflow. Please refer to how to ask on Stack Overflow.
Why does the link of how to ask refer to Stack Overflow and not to a Meta how to ask page?
If a user follows that link (s)he might be confused since the description found there might fit his/her question.
