We often get questions of the form "X has happened: this seems strange! What do I do?"
Answers tend to come in one of three flavours:
- This apparently strange behaviour is actually common practice and here's why... / a common problem and here's what you can do...
- No idea, ask whoever did it / someone with authority / someone who knows your circumstances and can give better advice.
- No idea, but I have a theory...
The OP is hoping for an answer in category 1, and indeed that's a useful contribution to the site. Thing is, that answer may not exist, and so Category 2 is often good advice and might be the 'right' answer. Category 3 is pure speculation and should probably be downvoted.
A Vote to Close is right for cases where there is little to go on and the only plausible answers are opinion, but in other circumstances, I feel it is excessive, as it essentially endorses the category 2 answer - whether or not there is a genuine category 1 answer 'out there' which the OP would accept or which the community would prefer to an 'ask someone else' answer.
There are of course better and worse ways of writing an 'ask someone else' answer.
