Some day this week I came across a question that a asked about a Microsoft product licence thing.
The question title and body was a clear "Where to ask about ..."
I agreed with one comment that most likely "not on the SE network at all, because off-topic". But I was still surprised that the question had at least 2 downvotes at that point.
Only later I figured: initially, the OP had asked this community to solve his problem. It was another MSE user who turned "how to do X" into "where to ask about X".
A side result was: that the OP came back later "but I still have that problem, so how to do X" in comments. The original questioner didn't get that asking "how to X" is off-topic here. The OP was still looking for people to help with X.
So, simply wondering: is it an appreciated practice of editing "lost soul" questions like that?
