My question Inability to get to work because public transportation failure was closed with the reason:
Questions seeking advice on company-specific regulations, agreements, or policies should be directed to your manager or HR department. Questions that address only a specific company or position are of limited use to future visitors. Questions seeking legal advice should be directed to legal professionals
but it should be absolutely obvious for everyone who have actually read it that it's the question for the general rule, which is neither company-specific nor refers to particular case (if it's not the case, I'll gladly reword it). I've tried to make that question as broad as possible, to refer to the general category of potential cases, caused by public transport failure in general, and not by specific issue, which was only an example.
Is there anything off topic in that question?
