So, in a nutshell, I was telling the people who loved Stack Overflow the most of all to basically … f**k off and go away. Jeff, I want to love the stackexchange sites, and I do often find them useful in doing my job, but to be frank you're still telling users to take a hike. The site moderators have extremely twitchy trigger fingers when closing questions as off topic. Maybe they are just adhering to a policy that's too strict, but this is a real shame because I see a lot of really interesting questions shut down for not being "specific" enough. And what's the alternative? Where *is* the appropriate place to ask & discuss some of the more open ended stuff? If not with the stackexchange community, then who? I've been a lurker since the beginning and recently started participating but I very quickly became frustrated at the amount of genuinely engaging topics that are being squelched.
