I noticed that the question As a developer, how can I ask for more freedom when confronted with a tight IT security policy? had been closed as off-topic with a note saying that it wasn't a question. Specifically, the note says:
Real questions have answers. Rather than explaining why your situation is terrible, or why your boss/coworker makes you unhappy, explain what you want to do to make it better. For more information, click here.
It seems to me that that's exactly what this question was doing: asking how to go about trying to improve the situation of overly-restrictive IT policies that hinder the productivity of developers. The question seems decidedly on-topic and is definitely a question (the specific question being asked is even bolded at the bottom of the question.) It does not seem to fit the description of the given close reason in any meaningful way. It is not a question that is specific to one particular situation; it's something that happens in many companies and is relevant to many future visitors. The question itself and several of the answers have rather positive vote scores, so apparently quite a lot of people found it relevant.
I suppose answers will be at least somewhat subjective, but not really any more so than almost every question on Workplace SE.
So, my question is why was it closed (and, if there's not a good reason, can we reopen it?)
