As a beginner of this site, I saw several comments and questions in confusion of scope in Quant SE site. I've read What is the scope of Quant SE?. But the list of accepted answer is mainly concentrating on finance side. As far as I understand QF, I can say QF is a combination of finance, statistics, and programming used in financial industry. And in my opinion, most of questions in this site fall in this scope better.
Question: Can I use this scope instead when I ask or answer a question in Quant SE?
Update: The scope turned out to be interesting discussion as participant issue. According to chrisaycock, pro term moderator of Quant SE, a non-quant, who is not living for QF - according to his definition, should not post at all. He went further and suggested any post should be in Ph.D level.
Although I have Ph.D in statistics, I am not aware of a way to discuss in Ph.D level so forgive me. Assuming his opinion represents the policy of this site, I'd say it's quite different from other SE sites. But I am not going to argue that. My question is why were people like me allowed to be here and to waste people's time including mine in the first place? If you guys want to be so exclusive, why not just create a career-verified and password-protected site for yourselves?
