I was recently reviewing a question, which (if I had paid better attention to the question from the beginning, I may have noticed before answering) had a SSCCE as its primary code example.
At first glance the question is asking which way is the best way to make their UI scalable in the future. I first reviewed their actual code, then gave my opinion on the question they actually asked. I was later criticized for my review on their UI layout, (I assume) because the posted code was an SSCCE.
Should questions which contain SSCCEs be closed as off-topic?
Edit: I see that there are 7 open topics right now which contain the token SSCCE. If the consensus is that SSCCEs are off-topic, should we close all of these. And are there mesaures that can be taken to make it easier to identify posts that have been posted with SSCCE, like having them marked for a review or something. Or perhaps when the user is asking the question, if the post contains the token SSCCE to warn the user that posts with SSCCEs are generally offtopic.
I do understand that in some cases, you may remove bulky repetative portions of code to get to the heart of the code quicker, this question is more directed towards code written as an example
