So somebody asks an innocent question on christmas lights:
It gets snarky responses and is closed.
Somebody asks about designing some RFID checkpoints:
It gets a snarky response and is closed.
Both examples are uninformed questions- but that is what questions are about! In both examples, the OP could have provided more information and asked things better, however, both examples are at least nominally something electrical.
Then somebody asks about glue:
It gets 9 upvotes as of this writing and is seen as a great question.
To me, this seems off.
My specific question is: What rewrites would you suggest to the FAQ regarding what are acceptable questions? Your answer may be "none", but my assertion would be the FAQ isn't working if questions that are at least somewhat electrical are being closed and disparaged while questions about glue, which would seem to be entirely unrelated, are welcomed.
