I've seen a few instances where questions are asked about the use of electronics test equipment and close votes accumulate for being about the "use of electronics devices rather than electronics design."
Shouldn't questions about the use of electronics test equipment such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, function generators, and so on, be generally on-topic?
Consider this question: Fluke 8508A reporting back before settling. I'm not saying it's a great question, but isn't the scope of the site more than just circuit design? While the question pretty much requires familiarity with Fluke instrumentation (somewhat narrow), isn't it a common problem that could be encountered in the course of electronics design?
I would only vote to close such a question if it was obvious that the OP was trying to use test equipment for something clearly outside the scope of EE work. (Like "How do I make an oscilloscope show some cool stuff for my sci-fi movie?")
