I've asked the following question: How would 'Electronics Right-to-Repair' legislation affect Electrical Design?
When I posted this I felt it was extremely applicable to electrical design. My intention was to find out what types of technical design changes would need to occur in order to accommodate this law. I thought this should be a fairly un-opinionated question with citation to IEEE or other design standards. I'm not looking to start a debate or open a forum question.
However, I received a pretty mixed opinion on the question. It was put on-hold almost immediately, and still is, but it is currently sitting with 4 up-votes, 4 votes to reopen, 1 vote to delete. One user thinks it is extremely appropriate, the other thinks it is completely off-topic. So I'm lost, is it on topic or not? I have read the help page but I get stuck on the fact that it uses words like feel and generally to describe appropriate questions.
I tried narrowing the question down to just the fifth point in order to make the question less broad but I'm not sure where to go from here. Do I edit the question further and try to salvage it, does it need more (or less) context, or do I just vote to close it myself? I don't care much whether is stays open or gets closed at this point but I am looking for an opinion from the community and to educate myself further about EE.SE.
