Problems can be categorized into 2 groups:
- Academic problems
- Real world problems
Solutions to academic problems are "pure", "preferred", "correct"...
Solutions to real world problems often have to get around real world constraints, but get things done.
When I see questions like this one, I wonder how best to handle serving both groups?
How does SO handle interacting between the two?
Or would one of these groups not be a good fit for SO?
