I rarely see off-topic questions on Stackexchange sites, where I don't know how to handle them right . Stackoverflow f.e. has the flag option: "Because these questions are not appear to be about programming within the scope defined in the help center."
But these type of questions I'm talking about don't fit even roughly to the available off-topic options. Because they aren't about programming at all or belong to another site of Stackexchange, where the proper site isn't available in the options too.
My question is how to deal with them properly in general?
- Use the flag option "other" with a comment?
- Simply downvote them?
