I recently asked a question asking whether my code could be minified any further, but it was put on hold for being off-topic.
Tim commented that he "voted to close as this is a code-golf question" and cited What topics can I ask about here?
Now, I know that code golfing isn't allowed here, but I thought code golfing was posing a fun challenge, not asking if code I've already written could be compressed. So, he suggested I post this, and I did.
Is asking how already-written code can be compressed considered code golfing? If not, is there another reason questions about code compression/minification would be off-topic?
