I've noticed for a long time already, that
almost all some Hot Questions in some communities (Academia, Workplace, RPG, etc.) can all be answered without digging, with the same answer:
Go and talk to whomever you have a problem with!
I have checked some of those questions - and the most sensible (and the most highly-voted) answers were exactly about social communication - as expected.
IMHO, it's the same kind of question that can be answered, like: "Google it.", "Read the Wikipedia", etc. - put it simply, the OP does nothing to answer their own question.
Are those questions really helpful in any way to anyone, except inspirating the OP? Shouldn't they be closed?
