When a user asks a question that is clearly better on a programming site like stack exchange the natural thing to do is to flag it as closed as "Off topic because" and then "belongs on another site".
The issue is that the only other site that is listed is the quantitative finance meta site. At a very minimum stack exchange should be on that list.
This would allow programming specific questions like What are the parameters of the function PORTVAR in Matlab?
to be ported to stack exchange where they belong.
