Forgive me for being intentionally obtuse. I don't want to give offense to anyone here and I'm being very careful in that regard.
Today I read a question which I found frankly tasteless.
I would like to ask the community if the action being discussed in the question and answers is ethical.
For example lets say that a user asked: "What is the most efficient way to destroy a widget?" I would like to ask: "Is it ethical to destroy a widget in this way?" But if I do so, the original poster will almost certainly notice the correlation.
Here then finally is my question: Is it OK to ask whether or not a particular action is ethical if the question can be easily correlated to an open question?
I'm concerned that asking the question might be considered synonymous with naming and shaming, as I would obviously want to link to the original question.
In avoiding mention of the question I am referring to I fear I may have made this question difficult to understand. If that is indeed the case, please accept my apologies. I'll be happy to answer any questions I can to clarify.
