I have posted the question Is breaking a verbal agreement to pursue career advancement ethical? in Workplace.SE. Surprisely it attracts both down votes and close votes. And finally this question was closed by marking localized. As per the definition from SE FAQs too localized means
This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable
I personally feel that the situation is not specific to geographic area or a specific moment in time or not also an extraordinary narrow situation. I believe it is one of the common situation any professional face this situation. And it helps future visitors who are in similar situation. However Firstly I don't understand why it is closed and secondly I don't understand how it fall under the category of too localized. Along with that I don't understand what is the wrong with this question and why community doesn't like this question.
Breaking the verbal commitment which has been given under unavoidable circumstances. Is it very localized situation? If so why?
Edit based on responses: I understand the close votes may be due to lot of specifics. I have modified the post and removed the as many specific details that I can. It is my experience that I have been reprimanded by other users for not providing enough specifics for some of my earlier questions which causes difficulties to provide accurate answer. Hence I have provide lot of specifics in the above post. Please review the post and let me know if it had any irrelevant specifics which also causes difficulties to answer the question
