I've noticed some questions, like the following, come up:
- Inheritance and forcing methods to be called inside another method
- Sending data through a TCP stream
These questions aren't really looking for a code review. Instead, they are asking a specific question about a code snippet. Should these questions be on-topic?
I brought up this subject before in Practical Best Practice Questions. While there wasn't much in the way of response, the two votes were to consider these questions on-topic. However, people are now voting to close them. As a community, we should come to a consensus about what we want to do.
Should we strictly allow code review questions, allow anything in the broad range of style/performance of code questions?
