In comments on a question related to fake news, a moderator responded to my edit trying to narrow the question with the following:
The problem with this question is that this is a question&answer website, not a discussion forum. We are here to explain how politics and political processes work. We are not here to brainstorm new solutions to political problems. This doesn't really work with the Stack Exchange system. So you might want to bring up this topic on a more discussion-oriented website. – Philipp ♦ 3 hours ago
Perhaps I misunderstand the limits of this forum, I would think that questions calling for brainstorming of solutions (technical or political/economic) would be acceptable.
On StackOverflow, software developers ask questions that prompt brainstorming solutions right? There may not be a single "right" answer, but expert input on directions that might prove helpful seem welcome there.
