I am mainly referring to this question:
Basically someone had a simple if statement asking if he could make it more Pythoinic and it was closed because it was considered "off-topic" How is this off-topic if there is a tag that is meant to address these type of questions?
I looked up what exactly is the main purpose for code review and found this question. Basically what I got from it is that Code Review is made with the intention of larger scale projects as opposed to small snippets.
So can someone clarify for me if this question is really considered off-topic? What exactly is coding-style referring to? Should we just burn it?
EDIT: I found a question that seems to use coding-style a lot more effectively. Is it these type of questions that SO is trying to target with this tag? Arguably this could be put up for Code Review as well though. The main difference is that he doesn't have code.
