I've noticed a lot of questions on stackoverflow that are things like whats the difference between framework A and framework B or language A & B

it is my option that theses question are off topic for stackoverflow and should go onto programmers.stackexchange yet there are allot of people supporting these kinds of questions with up votes and answers should I be flagging to move them or are they ok?

    Mostly pointless, shouldn't be migrated.

  • @jzd could you elaborate on that I don't see how it's pointless

  • I didn't say it was pointless, that was @Will. However, I somewhat agree with him as some questions might fit better on SO, so I might a call on one question but not the other. Either way they are not hugely off topic, does moving them really provide any advantage.

  • @jzd sorry, my mistaken copy paste, not that i can think of but the question is not based code based and neither is the answer so reputations would be skewed

  • I'd be tempted to say framework choice is probably on topic, but language choice isn't. But don't quote me
