I'm not entirely sure how to put this, but there have been a number of questions that fail for two reasons:
- They are written without any appreciation for objectivity and/or have very poor grammar.
- They cannot be answered (i.e. they ask purely subjective or unknowable things).
I find the existing finance message boards to be awash in idiocy, and was really hoping that we could maintain very high standards for this site so that it would truly be expert friendly; to the point that we could have known professors contributing to the site in a meaningful way.
As such, I suggest that we propose a set of grammatical and logical standards for questions. Please make one primary point per answer. Our final set of "standards" (based on consensus voting) can then be referenced whenever a poor question arises.
(Of course, another option is to suggest that we just continue to grow organically and let people follow their own personal style; feel free to answer that way if you are so moved.)
