I asked a question on Law.SE, but a moderator (I'm guessing) thought it would be more suited at Politics.SE, so he/she/it migrated it, then it got closed as off-topic. -.-

I agree it isn't suited for Politics.SE but also yield to a moderator's opinion.

So what, now?

The Question in question

  • @ᴡᴏʀᴅs, heh I don't mind it being OOS of both sites, but I agree what you said would have been the proper way. Should I do something, now?

  • I think it is about time we better define the difference between politics.SE and law.SE. I see a lot of questions which are IMO posted on the wrong site, but also others which are sent to the other even though they IMO don't belong there.

  • Can you please provide a link to the question so we can form our own opinion about where it belongs?

1 Answer 1

  • Typical policy (perhaps unwritten) is for the site mod to ask the target site mod if the question is in-scope before the migration.

  • Having said that, regrading your own specific questions, imho you have 2 options (stealing from my own comment):

    1. keeping it as-is, it's not about politics per se. However, there's a chance it is suited - with perhaps minor changes - to either philosophy.SE or Health.SE. Your best bet would be to ask on those sites' chat or Meta before asking on main site and if they sound positive, post there.

    2. However, while the existence of DNR orders by itself isn't a political thing, some aspects of the issue are political, e.g. the lack of existence of laws prohibiting them. So adjusting the question to ask about political aspects would make it possible to bring it in-scope here and get re-opened.

  • meh, I'll leave it to die
