So I mostly participate on the StackExchange site Superuser.com. Answers there, for the most part, have one solution. Sometimes, there are more than one answer, but all have a logical path to a solution. For example, "How do I delete a file?" There are multiple answers, each with a logical path to complete the action.
However, when I look at question and answers on the Workplace StackExchange site, I find my self shaking my head. So many of the questions revolve around common sense, ethics, opinion, and legality. Take the question, "Is it ok if I work shirtless" has no definite answer. Sure, common sense dictates that we shouldnt go shirtless in office environment. However, there may very well be an office that is OK with that. It may be perfectly legal in your particular legal jurisdiction. Ethics/opinion change based on your sex.
I bring this up, as I just "answered" this question, which has no answer, as there are pros and cons.
So I am curious, as I am more of a logical person, how do you go about answering questions that have no clearly defined answer? And how do you give an answer that clearly revolves around law, when I am sure most of us have no law background?
