I originally posted my question at Portuguese Stack Overflow (PT-SO), but it was closed because it was out of the programming scope.
The moderator advised me to post it on Super User and I did, but there my question was migrated to English Stack Overflow (EN-SO) because "it can be answered there."

There is no way to send personal messages, and I have no way to participate in discussions either in PT or EN Stack Overflow other than editing my post, because I don't have enough reputation to comment here.
Comments are important problem solving tools. At least, I can't find any other way to discuss what would happen to a question that's out of place. (?)
Thus, I don't agree with restricting access to this resource by reputation points. It's too important and shouldn't be blocked like that. Okay, it's not a huge number of reputation points that are needed, but I don't have enough, and I needed that feature.
The solution I can think of to avoid cases like mine is to create a standardized way for authors of out of scope questions in non-English sites to migrate-and-be-translated to another site recommended by the user that closed the question. This way the questions will have a history, and someone will think again before migrating/closing it again.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
