The question Allegations and Discriminations agains a PhD student just came in and is currently on hold. The OP says the question was asked at both Academia and Law and was recommended to ask over here.
What should be done with this question?
I think as originally posted it was far too long and difficult to understand, so understandable it would have been closed on the other sites. The revised summary is much better, but I think the best version is somewhere between the two. Right now it's off-topic for any site, but I think there's a good question in there somewhere.
The main question is, where does it belong? I think the short version of the question is clearly Academia and not Workplace - it's about a PhD student and harassment from their adviser, including issues regarding grading and other university departments. A lot of the aspects here involve some serious legal matters, and while legal questions are not on-topic on either site, I think Academia would be able to offer better recommendations for student legal resources.
The options as I see them are:
- Leave question closed
- Edit to bring on topic and keep at The Workplace
- Edit to bring on topic and migrate to Academia
- Migrate to Academia and let them bring it on-topic
#3 makes the most sense to me, though it's also the most work for the least benefit to The Workplace. Thoughts?
