I've seen a bit of jumping the gun on questions which are not, in fact, duplicates, or company specific but are being closed as such.
It is perfectly fine to refrain from voting on a question or especially voting to close a question if you are unfamiliar with the subject matter or culture.
Maritime industry standards are not employer specific and can be VERY different from country to country and trade treaties for example. Someone with no industry experience may not know this. Additionally, what applies to IT does not apply to other parts of a workplace. We generally get away with a good deal more, for example.
What I have observed from those two examples, and another about a factory worker is a rush to close these posts from people I know are not familiar with those industries and/or cultures. (given that they've posted what industry they are in and/or have it in their profile, this is not conjecture)
I think we should resist the urge to vote to close if we are unfamiliar with the industry or the culture. I wonder what the Community thinks about this situation, and what can we do to improve it?
