Also other questions got voted to be closed as unclear when in my opinion were perfectly answerable.
I understand that the "community" has fixed the situation in all these cases, but my feeling that the "unclear what you're asking" close reason is abused around here has built over a quite long period of time. I do not know how to do it, but it would be interesting to run a query on data.SE to see which questions got closed as unclear and are now reopened. (*)
In summary, in this meta discussion I would like to discuss:
- is this close reason abused? (and/or what is the "abuse" threshold)
- is it a problem? e.g., do we lose users by closing their (first) questions as "unclear" when they are simply poorly worded?
- if it is a problem, can it be solved?
(*)thanks to fooot for making the data query.
