A question (which has since been removed) arrived recently that is well formed in the sense of providing a clear statement of output desired for a given set of input, but is basically asking for the program to accomplish it. I know I could say "what have you tried", but I think that would be disingenuous, because it's pretty clear they haven't tried anything. If they have a clue as to how to go about doing it, it's not obvious.
Since the program is not that hard and not so trivial to be completely boring, I was tempted to answer it "for the points", but I decided that I'd go ahead and "flag it" as an inappropriate question. I'm coming up on 3k shortly, so as I understand it, my chances for using the "flag" approach (vs. voting to close) are going to to be limited.
Thing is, despite reading quite a bit about the flag dialog rewrite/rationalization, I still find the dialog to be extremely ambiguous/confusing. I know I could just "flag it for moderator attention", but it seems to me that a straightforward case like this "ought" to have an obvious "category" (i.e. series of flag dialog answers) that I can select. So my question is: How should I flag this?
