To expand on GAThrawn's comment... The first rule of migration is: Don't migrate crap. Migration should be reserved for outstanding questions that just happen to be on the wrong site. Migration should be the exception, not the rule. The vast majority of development questions we see are not very good. Were we to migrate them to Stack Overflow anyway, ...

First thing that comes to mind is the nature of answers that fit such questions. In the absence of any technical solution (which OP had asked), it has to be a repository of known apps that cause this nuisance.

Having to rephrase the question so that it satisfies the FAQ is a waste of time. But I agree that poll-type questions (...

Already asked on StackOverflow Meta: Downvotes versus close votes on questions When to downvote, when to close vote, when to do both?

Generally, we should edit to make the question clearer. If it's ...
